As has been widely reported over the last few days, Tony Adams has taken up a coaching role with Chinese Super League side Chongqing Lifan.
The legendary Gunner had been tipped to coach Arsenal’s under-18s alongside Kwame Ampadu after undertaking a five-week trial following Thierry Henry’s high-profile departure. For whatever reason, it appears he was not offered (or chose not to take?) the position on a permanent basis.

Adams had interviewed for the managerial position at Danish side Brondby earlier in the summer after drawing a line under his time as Sporting Director at Azerbaijani club Gabala FC.
The 49-year-old has previously managed Wycombe Wanderers and Portsmouth.
Chongqing Lifan unveiled Adams at a press conference confirming a link-up with La Liga outfit Granada. The Chinese club’s owner, Jiang Lizhang, is also the majority shareholder at the Spanish club and owns a stake in NBA franchise Minnesota Timberwolves.
