Arsenal Legend Wants To Be Gaffer

Arsenal Legend Wants To Be Gaffer

Arsenal legend, Tony Adams (And he is the true definition of the word legend, unlike Vital Chelsea's one season wonder) has expressed his desire to one day return to his spiritual home and manage the only club he ever played for.

Adams spent his entire career playing for the Gunners, leading them to Domestic cups, Euro finals, League and cup doubles, the dude was awesome. Now he has revealed that his 'ultimate aim' is to manage his club.

'Managing Arsenal is the ultimate aim. The club was a massive part of my life. Who would not jump at the chance to do that job? Everything is in place - the backroom staff, facilities, training ground and scouting network is phenomenal.' said Mr Arsenal

'The agreement between myself and Harry was that I would stay at Portsmouth for a year. I have learned so much but assistant manager is the most frustrating job in football.'

'I now miss having my head on the block.'

Big Tone had a brief stint as manager of Wycombe Wanderers before joining Harry at Pompey, and I must say that he proved himself to be a pretty terrible manager. However since then Adams has been on courses & worked with clubs all round the globe in a bid to better himself, to one day reach his ultimate goal.

Many clubs have often installed former footballing icons as the commander in chief of their teams based on sentimentality alone, and this is wrong. There is nothing I would love more than to see Tony Adams take over from the club when Wenger (god forbid) retires.

However I'd only want that if he were the right man to lead us forward, which at this moment I don't believe he is.
