Former Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Sol Campbell has spoken highly of Danny Rose and Jan Vertonghen to The Sun Dream Team FC.
Campbell has picked the Tottenham duo in his back-four for The Sun Dream Team FC’s Proper Legends team.
The former England international defender believes that Tottenham centre-back Vertonghen will be solid for the North London outfit in the upcoming 2016-17 season.
The former Newcastle United man has also stated that Spurs left-back Rose’s reputation is growing.
“It’s either him or Toby Alderweireld,” Campbell told The Sun Dream Team FC about Vertonghen. “I’ll go with Vertonghen. I think he could resurface and be solid again.”
“It’s difficult to choose a left-back, but Danny Rose could have another good season,” added Campbell about Rose. “He’s another one whose reputation is growing.”
