Frazier Campbell had a stressful transfer deadline day, learning at the last minute that there was no chance of him being sold, rather he was on his way down south to play for Tottenham Hotspur.
Whilst he wanted to stay and prove himself at United, he was happy to get experience from the London club. However, little did he know then that Spurs would go on to have their worst start to a season since 1912!
There might have been fears he would be resented by Spurs, who were not very happy to see their prize striker leave, only for them to train up a United striker in return. However, he’s played five games in a Spurs shirt now, including a couple of matches in the UEFA Cup, and the fans seem fairly responsive to him.
Campbell was voted as Man of the Match by Spurs fans on Sky Sports in their recent away draw against Wisla Krak, and our young striker is getting good vibes off them.
“Obviously results could be better but that will come,” he said. “I’m just waiting for a chance to show what I can do and make the most of any opportunities that come my way. The fans have been good to me so far, I try to add a spark when I play and I think they like that.”
