Kevin Campbell has claimed revived Tottenham are a “big problem” for their Premier League rivals this season as well as his beloved Arsenal.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the Gunners fan and former striker is worried about the improvements at Spurs and how the return of Gareth Bale can rocket them to a trophy.
Joe Mourinho’s side went into the international break second in the Premier League on the back of a series of performances that has made Campbell sit up and take notice.
With Bale back at the club where he developed into a global star and seven new signings in the last window, Campbell is concerned about the potential of a squad that has outstanding players as well as strength in depth.
“It’s a Gareth Bale that’s more experienced, that’s for sure a winner now, he knows how to win,” he told Football Insider.
“Multiple Champions League winner, league winner, cup winner, all of these types of things he knows what to do.
“He’s their skeleton key, so to speak. That Spurs squad haven’t won and they’ve brought in someone who knows how to do it.
“They’re looking for him to influence the rest to help them get over the line, the key is getting over the line.
“If they can get over the line then they’ll be trouble. If they win Spurs are a big problem because they’ve got internationals all over the shop.
“They’ve brought him in to be that catalyst, that skeleton key to open the door to get them through.
“Whether it works or not I don’t know. But they have signed a vastly experienced player now in Gareth Bale.”
