Arsenal legend Tony Adams has rejected the opportunity to work with the under-18s, following in the footsteps of Thierry Henry.
Both Adams and Henry had been offered the opportunity to work together in coaching roles and under Kwame Ampadu for the under-18s.
It was heavily reported a couple of weeks ago that Henry and Arsene Wenger had a disagreement regarding the role, with Arsenal’s top scorer wanting to take the job on alongside his punditry for Sky Sport. However, the 66-year-old refused Henry’s offer – who was happy to work for free, instead telling him to focus all of his efforts on one or the other, with the Frenchman opting to remain as a pundit.
Now, the Telegraph report that Adams has also rejected the opportunity to work at Arsenal after being offered the opportunity to work with Chinese side Chongqing Lifan as their head of youth development, with a ‘lucrative pay package’ the likely reason as to why he has opted to take the role.
