Where Are They Now? Frazier Campbell

Frazier Campbell

Fraizer Campbell was signed officially signed by Manchester United’s academy at the age of 17 and then two years later signed a professional contract, but in the three years at the club he only made two appearances and got loaned out to multiple teams including feeder club Royal Antwerp, Hull City and Tottenham Hotspur which he got 97 games and scored 42 goals which showed glimpses of why he was in Manchester United’s academy since he was 10.

In 2009 he was inevitably sold to Sunderland for £3.5 million but didn’t score his first goal in the Premier League until May 2010 against Bolton Wanderers in a 4-0 win. The next season he had a great start to the season but a massive damper in Fraizer Campbell’s career came as he suffered an ACL injury which left him out for six months. He came back to training in early 2011 but got injured again and had to have surgery to fix his knee injury and didn’t play football for 12 months. Campbell came back into action earlier than expected and got substituted on in the League Cup against Manchester City and scored the goal to make it 1-1.

The year later he got sold to Welsh team Cardiff City for £650,000 and made his debut a month later against Leeds United and got Player of the Month in the same month. In his first season with Cardiff City, he scored seven goals in a dozen of appearances  which took Cardiff to be the first Welsh team in the Premier League. In his final season in South Wales, he only scored nine goals in 40 games (in all competitions) which put the Bluebirds back in the Championship after just one season.

In the summer of 2014, he signed for London club Crystal Palace for £900,000 and still plays for this club to this day even though he has made 37 appearances and scored just seven goals.
