Granada appoint Adams as new manager


Granada have confirmed that Tony Adams as their manager for the rest of the season after Lucas Alcaraz and his coaching team were dismissed following a poor run of form.

Granada are currently 19th in La Liga and face an uphill battle in the final weeks of the season to maintain their top flight status.

Alcaraz, in his third spell in the job, only took over from Paco Jemez in October but has achieved only four wins in 24 league games.

Last week it was revealed that Adams had been working in an advisory capacity at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes.

The former Arsenal captain completed a move to Spain after spending last season working with Chinese Superleague side Chongqing Dangdai Lifan who, like the Andalusian side, are owned by Shanghai-based businessman Jiang Lizhang.

It’ll be interesting to see if Big Tone can rescue Granada, were he to do so coaching reputation would enjoy something of a boost after disappointing spells in England with Wycombe Wanderers and Portsmouth and a low-profile stint with Azerbaijan side FC Gabala.

Granada face Celta Vigo at the weekend, then games with Sevilla, Malaga, Real Socieded before hosting the might of Real Madrid. Osasuna and Espanyol complete Adams’ baptism of fire.

Good luck!
