The defender spent nine seasons with Tottenham - lifting the League Cup with a victory over Leicester in 1999 - before leaving the club for Arsenal in contentious circumstances in 2001.
Tottenham reportedly offered him a contract which would have made him one of the club's highest paid players but, after months of negotiations, Campbell left for Highbury on a free transfer.
"To the Spurs fans who maybe have a little bit more warmth for me I'd apologise for the way it happened, but I'm not going to apologise for the move," Campbell said.
"If they (Tottenham) had really wanted to worry about me they would have signed me up for two years like the rest of the lads. They always seemed to say he was over there, he's going nowhere and that's it.
"I tried to move the club on. Even in the last knockings of the contract talks I said 'here's a contract'.
"I gave them a four-year contract with a one-year break clause, and I said 'I'll give you one more year at this rate'. Basically, I'm saying if they can pay me this maybe they can bring in other guys like me on this kind of rate, to move the club on."
