Arsenal legend Tony Adams named new coach of Granada

Arsenal legend Tony Adams has been named new coach of Granada.

Adams has been appointed the new manager of La Liga strugglers Granada.

The 50-year-old has been out of the game since spending a season with Azerbaijan side Gabala in 2010.

Adams was also in charge of Wycombe and Portsmouth for a season but struggled to find his feet in the dugout. He played over 500 games or Arsenal - the only club he represented during a stellar playing career.

Adams won fourth league titles with the Gunners as well as three FA Cups and two League Cups.

He represented his country 66 times, scoring five goals.

Granada are second bottom of the Spanish top flight and lost 3-1 to Valencia last weekend, a result that saw Lucas Alcaraz sacked.

Adams said last month: "Every day I'm working with the coaching staff at Granada CF, looking to the future. Our aim is that our squad will contain mostly Spanish players next year, whatever level the team is playing in next season.

"I'm here to put the Spanish structure in place, with players who will belong to Granada CF and who will fight for Granada", he insisted, whilst also recalled details of what John Jiang inherited when he took over the club last year."

Adams' first game will be against Celta Vigo next Sunday.
