Turk-ing the mick

Arsenal hero Kevin Campbell claims Nottingham Forest’s near 25-year exile from the Premier League is down to selling him to Trabzonspor against his wishes in 1998.

Campbell told SunSport ahead of the Gunners’ FA Cup clash with Forest: “One million per cent that was what led to Forest being out of the Premier League for so long.

“If you have possession of a Premier League spot, you have to protect it for dear life because it’s so difficult to get there.

“We won the Championship title, we were back up and the club decided to shoot themselves in the foot.

“We had something in that dressing room that was special, to be able to bounce back from disappointment and go again, win the Championship… you add that and I think you’re in a really good spot.

“But they decided to pull it all apart. They brought players in who hadn’t played in the Premier League.

“It was a mess. I was looking at it from afar and I was cringing. It still makes no sense to me”
