After landing his move to Belgium, Campbell thanked SuperSport via Instagram for giving him a chance to develop from a talented six-year-old prospect.

Campbell said:

"I feel overwhelmed, I won't lie. I was the youngest player to ever sign for SuperSport United, that's how much belief Stan [Matthews] had in me, and when I signed, I was the happiest boy on Earth, actually. I am proud to have been part of the SuperSport United family, Forever Spartans."

Earlier in the season, SuperSport coach, Gavin Hunt, said it was important to keep Campbell grounded after he started attracting interest from Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs.

Fans are proud of Campbell
