Portsmouth to make official Sol complaint to FA

Portsmouth have confirmed they will make an official complaint to the Football Association over the abuse Sol Campbell received during Sunday's match against former club Tottenham Hotspur.

The Pompey captain was subjected to abuse from the terraces during his team's 2-0 Premier League victory at Fratton Park.

The south coast club confirmed: "After discussions with Sol Campbell, we will be making an official complaint to the Football Association concerning the verbal abuse aimed at him during Sunday's match against Tottenham."

Campbell, 34, is a hate figure for Spurs fans after he moved to their bitter north London rivals Arsenal in 2001.

Hampshire police confirmed on Wednesday they would investigate alleged racist and homophobic abuse aimed at the player.

Pompey's statement today continued: "Both Sol and the club feel no player should be subjected to personal abuse of this nature and that it has no place in football.

"The club will be urging the FA to look into this as a matter of urgency and will co-operate fully in any investigations which take place, either by the FA or by Hampshire Police."

Hampshire Police initially said they would report the matter to the FA because it was not possible to make arrests due to the sheer numbers chanting.

However, a spokeswoman said the force had received one complaint about the abuse and that it would be investigated.
