Adams wants to manage Arsenal

Adams wants to manage Arsenal

Former Arsenal captain Tony Adams,'Mr Arsenal` himself, has said that he would love to manage Arsenal one day. While claiming he would have left his role as Portsmouth`s Assistant Manager alongside Harry Redknapp had a role at Arsenal been offered he has said that he is content with his present position for the present.

Speaking at an England fans' forum hosted by the Nationwide Building Society who sponsor the international team the former legendary defender said that he is waiting for Arsene Wenger to give way.

'Arsene won't move over will he?!' he joked. 'I keep saying to him: 'When are you going to move over and let me have a bash?' But, at the moment, he still seems to be enjoying himself - although one day!"

Arsene Wenger is contracted to the club for another 3 years and has never failed to complete a contract so the earliest opportunity for Adams or anyone else to take-over the reins would be 2011. Though most would probably still hope that Wenger would be willing to commit himself to the club for even longer.

I would like to see Tony take a Steve Bould type role at Arsenal. If he were to take over at Arsenal (and that's a massive IF) he's got a lot of work to do before he's ready!!

let him learn from Wenger for a season or two BEFORE he takes over. i am not sure who other coaches or managers train their teams like us.

I'd love to see him in our dugout in the future. So between now and 2011, I hope he keeps doing a good job with Pompey, possibly takes up a role back at the Arsenal. But with Pat Rice seemingly also not going anywhere, and Big Tone apparently not ready to take up a "lesser" role like defensive coach or reserves coach, I don't know. I do hope he comes back though of course.

Just because he was a good player, doesn't necessarily mean he will be a good manager. If he has dreams of managing Arsenal one day, he needs to achieve something at the highest level in football management. I would be really disappointed if he was just handed the job without having earned it. A top club like Arsenal needs the best manager there is and there is no room for sentiment.

He should take up a role as deffensive coach/Assistant to Arsene before taking on the whole thing. I'd like to see him take the job one day but I wouldn't want him doing it badly and tarnishing our club and his status as club legend. He needs far more experience.

I'd like to see him back at Arsenal in some kind of role in the future. It's all a bit speculative I know, but with Dennis Bergkamp quietly making small steps towards coaching, I'd love to see him having a crack too somewhere down the line. Our attacking nature as a club may well support that. Still, whoever it may be I just hope that they are from the generation of players that have played under Wenger and have also seen the day to day running of the club, how our scouting network works etc. I'm sure our future will be left in safe hands.........Safe Hands....now there's a thought, lol 8-)
