Arsenal legend Tony Adams has ruled himself out of the running for the England U21 job.

Adams says he will not apply for the job but will always help out his country if asked, as he did in taking coaching sessions recently for England Under-19s.

He told The Sun: "I don't need to go chasing work. I said after my escapade of managing Portsmouth I wouldn't work for idiots any more - so that's 99 per cent of football!"
