Kevin Campbell has praised Arsenal defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos on Twitter for his comments following the match against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Arsenal suffered a 3-1 loss at the hands of Wolves away from home at the Molineux Stadium in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

The Gunners did not deserve anything from the match, as the Wanderers completely outplayed them.


After the match, Arsenal defender Sokratis - who has been on the books of the North London outfit since the summer of 2018 when he joined from German club Borussia Dortmund for a transfer fee reported by The Daily Mail to be worth £17 million - made some strong comments.

The 30-year-old Greece international central defender said, as quoted by The Guardian: “All the players take responsibility. We are not stupid. We know we didn’t play good. We have to win all the games.”

Former Arsenal striker Campbell has taken to Twitter to praise Sokratis for his comments, and he believes that the Greek defender is a leader.
