More trouble at Pompey. Goal.com speculates that Portsmouth defender Sol Cambell is involved in a bust-up with the club’s chief Peter Storrie and is reportedly to have demanded a move.
At the heart of the alleged fall out between the two men is the dramatic downhill slide of Portsmouth from a UEFA Cup hopeful to a Premiership also-ran. Campbell is believed to be frustrated at the lack of ambition of Portsmouth and the club’s apparent reluctance to make any major signings to boost the squad and challenge for a European place.
Campbell didn’t feature in Portsmouth’s 3-1 win over Derby County in the Premiership at the weekend but a club’s spokesman has played down any prospect of the player leaving Fratton Park.
The spokesman says:
It’s quite simple. Sol had a back problem and he’s been having treatment on it all week. We hoped he would be fit but he couldn’t make it.I spoke to Peter Storrie about it [the spat] and he laughed and said it was rubbish.
But we all know Campbell, don’t we? Once his mind is made up, he is sure to stick to it. It’s a shame really that Portsmouth could have to lose such an influential player.
