Campbell happy after Sol search

Posted on 12 January 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).

Sol Campbell has reiterated that he wants to stay at Tottenham.

Big Sol — struggling to overcome a hamstring problem in time for Saturday’s game at Everton — recently ended speculation by insisting in the national press and on television that he believed his future was at the Lane.

His contract is up at the end of the season and, under the terms of the Bosman ruling, he can now talk to clubs on the continent.

But he insists he wants to help bring back the glory, glory days and that all that really mattered was the fans.

A relaxed and happy Sol, in-between treatments at Spurs Lodge, explained: “I’m very happy now. As I’ve stated I’m going to meet people in the near future and start talking about things.

“I’m much happier. I’ve got a lot off my shoulders. I’m looking forward to it.

“New owners are coming in and we’ll talk. There is a lot of time to sort things out. It’s a wonderful club at Tottenham and I want to stick by it.

“New people are coming into the arena and I’m happy and willing to talk. I’m more relaxed now I’ve made the situation clearer.

“It might have knocked some people what I said, good or bad. Some people might have wished that I’d carried on with the status quo. But for the fans who love the club and want it to do well it’s all good.

“All the rest can go by the wayside.”
