Tottenham blank Sol Campbell for White Hart Lane farewell

Published on: 03 May 2017

Former Tottenham defender Sol Campbell has been blanked for the club's White Hart Lane farewell.

The Times says Paul Gascoigne has been invited to Tottenham's farewell at White Hart Lane – but former captain Campbell was snubbed.

Gazza, who made 325 appearances for Spurs, is one of a number of club legends that have been asked to return to the ground for their last game against Manchester United on May 14.

But the North Londoners have not invited Campbell who controversially left to join bitter rivals Arsenal back in 2001.

Club chiefs are afraid the event could be marred by a fan backlash if the ex-England international makes an appearance.
