Arsenal fans to set up GoFundMe page to make banner of naked Sol Campbell to show at Tottenham Stadium during derby

TOTTENHAM fans could be greeted by the sight of a naked Sol Campbell during their derby clash against Arsenal once the football season resumes.

Gunners supporters continuously taunt Spurs over their former skipper who ran his contract down in 2001 before joining the red half of North London on a free transfer.

During the 2000/2001 season Campbell insisted he would be signing a new deal with Spurs, but instead he was announced as an Arsenal player in a shock press conference as he walked out alongside Arsene Wenger.

The now Southend boss went on to earn legendary status at Arsenal, as he helped the club to Premier League and FA Cup glory in his first year, before winning the same domestic cup a year later.

And he was a key figure during their 2003/04 Invincibles campaign that saw the club win the league unbeaten, and he even helped himself to another FA Cup the following term.

Campbell even broke the deadlock in the 2006 Champions League final against Barcelona, but the Gunners couldn't hold on to their lead as they eventually lost 2-1 in Paris.

To further rub salt in their wounds of Spurs fans, an Arsenal fan account - that boasts over 58,000 followers on Twitter - has proposed an idea to show off Campbell in his birthday suit at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium once the football season resumes.

Posting a picture of a nude Campbell, he tweeted: "Going a bit stir crazy now, so seriously considering setting up a GoFundMe account to get a huge banner of this made for Spurs away - whenever it takes place."

Unsurprisingly fans were loving the idea, as one user said: "I am more than happy to chip in for this!"
