Campbell focused on World Cup not Arsenal exit

17

It seems unlikely that Arsenal will afford Joel Campbell an opportunity to resurrect his Arsenal career.

In the seven years he’s been a Gunner he’s only spent one and a half seasons actually competing for a first team place at the Emirates – the rest of the time he’s been out on six different loan moves.

With just days left on his current contract, the 25-year-old would be forgiven for having one eye on negotiations with possible suitors, however, he’s at the World Cup with Costa Rica…and, well, that’s important too.

Asked whether the chance to play in Russia could help him secure a move, the attacker said: “The World Cup won’t change my life, I don’t come here to show myself.

“I came to help my national team, everyone writes his own history and we have to look after group.

“I know about my contract and I know who I am. God has a plan for me.”

That all seems reasonable. Campbell didn’t actually start his country’s first game. He was a second half substitute as they went down 1-0 to Serbia.

“With just days left on his current contract”, umm, his name was on Arsenal’s Premier League retained list suggesting he has at least a year left on his current deal.

Emery doesn’t even realise he’s in the squad

Actually really, really like the maturity and attitude this guy has always carried around. Never stirred up any trouble and consistently positive, despite having to play in a bunch of different countries and learn a bunch of different systems. A good man.

But, alas, top class guys don’t always mean top class footballers. Geres to Joel kicking on in Russia and securing a good move for himself at a club that will get the most out of him.
