Portsmouth assistant boss Tony Adams admits he has ambitions of managing Arsenal.

"Arsene won't move over will he?!" exclaimed Adams. "I keep saying to him: 'When are you going to move over and let me have a bash?'

"But, at the moment, he still seems to be enjoying himself although, one day [maybe]."

Adams is happy to be continuing to learn his trade on the South Coast but has serious ambitions on the coaching side of the game.

"I'm alright," he stated. "Nothing became available in the summer that I wanted a go at or that wanted me is the main thing.

"No-one came and sought my employment.

"Harry did, and Peter Storrie, and Portsmouth. They wanted me to help out for another year and I said 'great, not a problem'.

"It keeps me out of the house!"
