Arsenal legend Adams: Wenger transformed English football

Arsenal legend Tony Adams has paid tribute to manager Arsene Wenger.

Adams saluted the French boss as a genius in preparing players physically - and in building squads.

He said: "Arsene for me is a physiologist. He is a magician in that field, bio-mechanically assessing players, fitness or whether they are ready to play.

"I think that's where his forte is. In preparation of professional athletes he's second to none."

The former England centre-back believes Wenger's 14 years in charge have transformed Arsenal and eclipsed the great work of predecessor George Graham.

Adams added: "It's amazing what Arsene has done so George's achievements can be over-shadowed."
