Arsenal legend targets return

Published Add your comment

Arsenal legend Tony Adams has his sights set on an eventual return to the club he loves so dearly.

The 44-year-old captained the Gunners to two Barclays Premier League titles and three FA Cups during a glorious career at Highbury and is seemingly destined to eventually make his way back to north London in some capacity.

Adams is currently the manager of Azerbaijan Premier League side Gabala FC in an attempt to rebuild his managerial career which was, perhaps, unfairly damaged during a brief spell with Portsmouth.

However, should the former England skipper eventually receive a call from his former club, then Adams would jump at the chance - but only if he was offered the top job.


“I would love to go back to Arsenal one day, but not as No 2 or a defensive coach. Arsene Wenger would not let me do enough," he joked.

"He does all the coaching, so I don’t think I could work under him. It’s a tougher job at Gabala than at Arsenal.”

He added: “Arsene is a magnificent physiologist and psychologist. And he is a lovely man, he has the respect of most of the players he has worked with.”
