Tony Adams returns to management with Spanish strugglers Granada

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 10 April 2017, 14:07

Spanish side Granada have named Arsenal icon Tony Adams as their new manager in one of the more perplexing appointments of the season.

The former England and Arsenal captain has previously managed Wycombe, Portsmouth and Gabala, and it’s fair to say that is record is pretty abysmal: he suffering relegation with Wycombe, lasted only 16 games at Pompey, which was followed by an uninspiring stint in charge of Azerbaijani club Gabala, while he was last seen working with Chinese Super League side Chongqing Dangdai Lifan.

Last week Adams was appointed as Granada’s sporting director and now, following the sacking of Lucas Alcaraz, he’s become the club’s new boss through to the end of the season.

The 50-year-old certainly has a tough task on his hands with struggling La Liga side Granada (19th) currently seven points adrift of safety with seven games to go.

The southern Spain side have picked up only one point from their last six games, losing 3-1 at home to Valencia on Sunday, and now Adams has seven pivotal games to save their season.

Adams’ first match at the helm is on Sunday at home to 10th placed Celta Vigo, while he locked horns with Real Madrid’s Zinedine Zidane in early May.
