Tony Adams recruits Man United & West Ham old boys at Granada

Oh oh Tony Adams

Former Arsenal captain Tony Adams was appointed manager of struggling La Liga side Granada on Monday, in a move that had the footballing world collectively scratching their heads.

Adams stressed that he was very much an ‘interim’ manager but vowed to give his players a good “kick up the arse.”

Granada are currently 2nd from bottom in La Liga, seven points from safety.

On trial

Remarkably, the Spanish club only have nine permanent players in their first team squad, with sixteen on loan from clubs including Barcelona (Sergi Samper), Chelsea (Jeremie Boga) and Man United (Andreas Pereira).

Ahead of Adams’ first match in charge against Celta Vigo on Sunday, Mr. Arsenal is already looking to bring in some new players.

Former Manchester United and Sunderland wing-back Kieran Richardson and former England U21 captain Nigel Reo-Coker are both training at the club during a trial period.

What next?
