Tony Adams: Arsene couldn’t coach his way out of a paper bag

Tony Adams has once again lifted the lid on his somewhat frosty relationship with Arsene Wenger since he left the club in 2002, he told the Sun in an exclusive interview. 

The Arsenal legend is currently the interim manager at Grenada for the final six games but has revealed his comments on his former club have hindered his chances at returning to Arsenal to coach, comments such as “Arsene couldn’t coach his way out of a paper bag”. 

“Because Arsene is essentially not a coach. Back in the day I said in an interview coaching wasn’t Arsene’s strong point.”

“Actually in the original draft, I said he couldn’t coach his way out of a paper bag. And though I modified that in the final article, it didn’t go down well. It all left me feeling that I would never get a chance in any capacity while Arsene was there.”

“Much as I respected him for his long and successful tenure, my occasional willingness to pass comment on him and the team probably counted against me.”
