Frazier Campbell scored two goals against Liverpool during the week, dumping Liverpool out of the League Cup. With both teams playing a weakened side, Tottenham Hotspur totally outplayed the dippers in the first half, continuing the great run of form since Harry Redknapp took over.
Cambpell knows he could have moved to Wigan or Hull on a permanent basis, but is glad he took the option of going on loan to Spurs so he could stay with United.
“I’m happy with choice that I made and I have to make sure that I’m successful for Spurs now because that’s my job,” said Campbell. “The manager has said he will give me a chance and when he does I am determined to take it. I do think about Hull sometimes and think what might have been but there is no room for sentiment in football. I didn’t think that they would be doing as well as they have done and maybe they have surprised me along with everyone else, but fair play to them because they have some good players there. But I had a chance to go back to Manchester United, who I have played for and support and I wouldn’t have forgiven myself for turning that down.”
