London, May 28: Ex-English footballer Sol Campbell has warned England fans not to travel to Euro 2012 because they ‘could end up coming back in a coffin’.
The former Arsenal and Tottenham defender believed that visiting Poland or Ukraine is ‘too much of a risk’ owing to the threat of violence and racism.
“Stay at home, watch it on TV. Don’t even risk it … because you could end up coming back in a coffin. I think they were wrong (to award Euro 2012 to Poland and Ukraine), because what they should say is that if you want this tournament you sort your problems out,” the Daily Mail quoted Campbell, as saying.
Campbell, who won 73 caps for England, has insisted that Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) were wrong to award such a prestigious tournament to the two countries.
“Until we see that you have sorted it out, you are never going to get the tournament. You do not deserve these prestigious tournaments in your country,” he said. (ANI)
