Campbell famously declared in an interview that he was going to extend his stay at White Hart Lane as he approached the end of his contract.

But in arguably the most shocking transfer in Premier League history, the 47-year-old linked up with Arsenal on a free transfer.

He won the league and FA Cup double in his opening season at Highbury, before becoming an Invincible in 2004.

And ahead of Thursday’s crucial derby which could decide who secures a Champions League spot, Spurs fans showed their hatred for Campbell.
