Barca chief on Sol

Posted on 23 May 2001  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Barcelona coach Carles Rexach has admitted negotiations have taken place with Sol Campbell — but he fears Sol’s love for Spurs will see him remain at the Lane.

The Spanish giants have reportedly offered Sol a five-year, £100,000-a-week deal to leave on a free transfer when his contract expires next month. He is a free agent under the terms of the Bosman ruling.

Rexach insisted: “A lot depends on whether Campbell wants to leave Tottenham, a club he has played for all his life.

“He says he wants time to think about it but I believe that if he can reach an agreement with Tottenham he will stay there.

“He is the kind of defender we like. He is young and aggressive and we have lacked some things in defence this season, especially with injury problems affecting Aberlardo and Frank de Boer.

“But my personal opinion is that Campbell likes Tottenham so much that he will accept a good offer to stay with them.

“We may have to look at other players now and there have been stories about Cristoval the Brazilian player who is in France. It is possible because although he is not as aggressive as Campbell he is maybe a bit more constructive.”
