Arsenal legend Adams: I wouldn't want to succeed Wenger

Arsenal legend Tony Adams says he would think twice about taking the manager's job.

The man known as Mr Arsenal has nothing enjoyed the same success on the managerial stage, where he has spent time at Wycombe, Portsmouth, Azerbaijani side Gabala and most recently an interim stint at Spanish side Granada.

The 51-year-old has his doubts over returning to England's “managerial merry-go-round" and even a theoretical return to his boyhood side might not tempt him back.

“I am not sure I'd want to go next [at Arsenal] after Arsene -- there might be a fallout and it might be complicated once he leaves," Adams told Sky Sports.

“But I wouldn't be afraid of it, that's for sure."
