Adams launches fresh attack on Wenger: ‘I feel sorry for him – he has no friends’

Date Posted,May 28, 2017

Tony Adams has launched a fresh attack at Arsene Wenger , claiming the Frenchman has no friends would have been sacked at any other club.

The Arsenal legend has previously hit out at his former boss’ ability, claiming he ‘couldn’t coach his way out of a paper bag’.

Wenger dismissed the comments but Adams , who lost all of his matches in charge of Granada this season, has had another dig.

His latest attack comes just days after Wenger won his seventh FA Cup with Arsenal.

Adams told the Guardian : “He said: ‘I’ve turned down every club in the world’. But he would’ve been sacked after a year at Madrid. He would’ve had to go to from club to club.

“But, at Arsenal, he’s got total dominance. The board do nothing. Arsene has a free rein. I don’t think he can let go. It’s an addiction.

Adams went on to attack Wenger’s personal life and accused the Frenchman of doing little to reward the club’s coaching staff.

“It’s not like he’s using the money to throw lavish parties for his friends because he hasn’t got any. He’s only got a few guys in France. I feel a bit sorry for him,” Adams added.

The former Gunners skipper was at Wembley to watch the FA Cup final win over Chelsea.

He admitted he was “delighted” for his former boss but suggested the Frenchman should “call it a day” as he prepares to announce his decision on his future.
