Arsene Wenger has revealed that Arsenal players booed Sol Campbell in training, to help him prepare to face former club Tottenham.

Campbell stunned the footballing world in the summer of 2001 when he made a controversial switch from Spurs as a free agent.

A few months later, he returned to White Hart Lane for the first time and was given a hostile reception, with Tottenham fans branding him ‘Judas’ and he was even hit by a water bottle during the game.

But Campbell was braced for the reaction, after his teammates spent the week leading up to the game booing him in training.

When asked if it was true that Arsenal’ players had booed and intimidated Campbell before facing Spurs, Wenger told German magazine, 11 Freunde: “They did that, and they also made jokes about it.

“But the situation was really stressful for Sol and he told me afterwards how severe it became.

“He couldn’t go to certain places for dinner or walk freely in London because of the anger of the Tottenham fans.

“In hindsight, I’m not sure if I would sign him again bearing in mind the difficulties he faced.”
