Whether it is an official account or not, a tweet posted this afternoon under the handle @SolCampbell_74 receive a less than kind response from many Tottenham Hotspur fans, much to the delight of Arsenal supporters.
Rather than skirt around the topic of the England defender’s controversial switch from White Harte Lane to Highbury on a free transfer in 2001, the account posted a rather inflammatory comment.
Already receiving abuse from Tottenham fans on here, I moved on and won trophies with Arsenal. Move on..

Football fans on Twitter have been debating the authenticity of account with many understandably believing it to be a fake. Without the “blue tick”, they are more than likely correct. But that didn’t stop Spurs fans responding less than favourably.

Think sol Campbell needs to realise that it’s not material things that matter and stand up, it’s the way you carry yourself as a man

@SolCampbell_74 Never move on, you need to be reminded of your actions on a daily basis, no loyalty, no respect, no morals. Scum

Obviously the above tweets are a selection of the more “mild” replies. Whilst one half of North London was fuming, the other was delighted. Gunners fans revelled in the jealousy and hostility of their Tottenham counterparts.

Even if it is a fake, the episode should leave Sol Campbell in no doubt about his status amongst the Spurs fans. A visit to White Hart Lane in the near future may not be advisable.
