Former Arsenal captain Tony Adams appointed La Liga manager

Mr. Arsenal

Mr. Arsenal Tony Adams has been appointed manager of struggling La Liga side Granada until the end of the season.

Everything about this appointment seems odd and it has a ring of Gary Neville at Valencia to it.

Adams was recently appointed as Sporting Director of the club last week. Now the club have confirmed that he has been made manager until the end of the campaign.

It would appear that Adams has a personal relationship with Chinese owner Jiang Lizhang.

No experience

Despite an illustrious playing career, Adams has not had any real success as a manager.

The 50-year-old’s last managerial job was back in 2011 with Azerbaijani side Gabala.

Adams also had a brief stint with Portsmouth in 2008 but was sacked after just 16 matches in charge.

Granada are currently second from bottom in the Spanish La Liga, five points from safety.

The side lost 3-1 at home to Valencia on Sunday.
