Gunners legend Adams reveals why Wenger will NEVER invite him to coach at Arsenal

Date Posted,May 17, 2017

Tony Adams has revealed he can never return to Arsenal as long as Arsene Wenger is at the club.

Former Gunners defender Adams questioned Wenger’s coaching ability before ranting that he “couldn’t coach his way out of a paper bag.”

Adams went on to manage Wycombe and Portsmouth in the Football League before moving to Azerbaijan to coach Gabala for a season in 2010.

He then remained with the club in the background, working in a sporting director role, before heading to Spanish side Granada in a similar position last year.

This season the ex-England centre back sensationally returned to the dug out in April as he attempted to save Granada from La Liga relegation – but has lost all six of his games in caretaker charge.

Meanwhile, Wenger is about to complete his 22nd season at the Gunners having won three Premier League titles and six FA Cups.

“Back in the day I said in an interview coaching wasn’t Arsene’s strong point,” Adams explained in his book ‘SOBER. My story. My Life’ which is being serialised by the Sun .

“Actually in the original draft, I said he couldn’t coach his way out of a paper bag. And though I modified that in the final article, it didn’t go down well.

“It all left me feeling that I would never get a chance in any capacity while Arsene was there. Much as I respected him for his long and successful tenure, my occasional willingness to pass comment on him and the team probably counted against me.”
