Video: Sol Campbell shares joke with Paul Merson over Tottenham Hotspur exit

Sol Campbell Arsenal

The former Arsenal defender hasn't endeared himself to Spurs fans over the years.

Sol Campbell has revealed how his final meeting with Glenn Hoddle before his Spurs exit panned out, in an appearance on Sky Sports’ Fantasy FC programme.

The former England international came through the Spurs academy to make 255 appearances and captain the team to the League Cup in 1999, before leaving for bitter rivals Arsenal in controversial fashion.

Campbell had grown disillusioned with a Spurs team that he felt was going nowhere and strung the club along with promises of signing a new deal before finally joining the Gunners on a free transfer after his contract ended in the summer of 2001.

The powerful defender went on to enjoy great success under Arsene Wenger and cemented his place as a hate figure for Spurs fans in the process.

His discussion with another former Arsenal man, Paul Merson, on Fantasy FC revealed the awkward encounter he had with Hoddle as he broke the news of his departure.
