Sol Campbell has paid tribute to his old defensive partner Tony Adams in the week that 'Mr Arsenal' was named as head coach of Spanish top-flight side Granada.
Sol - who has been in Sydney ahead of our pre-season trip to Australia - won the Premier League and FA Cup double with Adams in 2002 before the long-serving Arsenal captain announced his retirement.
"Tony was a fantastic captain. He's been so connected with one club and that club is Arsenal."
"Tony was a fantastic captain," said Sol. "He's been so connected with one club and that club is Arsenal.
"For me, he was a great captain, he stood up for everybody. For everybody, he kind of led the line. He’s Arsenal through and through. He's an organiser and he made sure everybody was always up for games and things like that. He is a true, true leader.
"He won many games with Arsenal, captained the club for a very, very long time and he will go down as one of the greats not only for England but definitely for Arsenal."
