‘Campbell good enough for Arsenal’

Costa Rica forward Joel Campbell is ready to play a part in the Arsenal squad next season, ESPN has reported the player’s father as saying.

Campbell scored as Costa Rica beat Uruguay in their World Cup opener, having also impressed last season while on loan at Olympiakos. Campbell scored in the Champions League against Manchester United, one of nine goals plundered by the 21-year-old.


“My country is a small country - just a few million - and people pretty much ignore us,” Humberto Campbell said. “But if my son was Brazilian, for example, he would be famous around the world.


“Hopefully [Arsene Wenger] can see what Joel can do,” he continued. “If they bring him back home to Arsenal I will be very happy. If they don't then wherever they send him he just has to go and keep his feet on the ground.


“He has always been good enough. He just needs them to give him the chance. I always had it in mind that Arsene knows what is best for young ones. He always makes good players.


“He has the football to show in England and this is the time for him to prove it to everybody. What he did against Uruguay, it was incredible. I knew he was going to score or do something exceptional, like he did for the third goal. I expected that. I knew it would happen.”


Campbell moved to Arsenal in 2011, having previously played for Saprissa in his homeland. He has also been loaned out to French club Lorient and Real Betis, scoring three times in 25 games for the former and twice in 28 games for the latter.
