Arsenal requires experienced heads to win silverware: Campbell

Posted By: Staff

London, May 20(ANI): Arsenal defender Sol Campbell has insisted that unless the Gunners sign experienced players they will not succeed in winning any silverware.

"You need experienced players who have been through all the scenarios in the season. You cannot beat it. In certain situations in a season it gets a bit sticky and you just know to focus your mind and get through it," Campbell said.

"There are times when you need a vital win in the league or to get into the FA Cup final. Players on that level who've got that kind of experience behind them they are so valuable," he added.

Campbell also said the string of injuries to key players this season exposed the lack of depth as well as experience in his squad.

"Injuries didn't help for sure. Key players like Van Persie and Fabregas. They really hurt us," The Sun quoted Campbell, as saying.

"We just need more depth to the side because you're going to have suspensions and injuries and you can't keep relying on 13-14 players because once you have three or four injuries you suffer," e added. (ANI)
