I am not suggesting that the former Arsenal and England centre back Tony Adams is just a small step away from being ready to take on the role of Arsenal manager. Far from it to be honest, but if he could learn the skills needed and prove himself there are few people that Arsenal fans would prefer to be in charge.
I still very much doubt whether that will happen, especially anytime soon, but even having a club legend like Adams working for Arsenal in any capacity would be fantastic and if it was going to be in a position where some of his famous leadership skills could rub off on the current players it would be as welcome as a cold beer to man just finishing a long trek through the Sahara desert.
Tony´s coaching career thus far has not exactly set the world alight. His record has been decent but all with struggling clubs which would make a move to Arsenal a huge step up in class. Maybe not for long though, as our former captain fantastic has been handed the reins at the Spanish La Liga club Granada who are deep in relegation trouble.
Imagine if Adams does well. Could that be the first step in arguably our greatest captain coming back to manager Arsenal one day?
