The Arsenal legend Tony Adams did not consider that while Arsene Wenger is at the helm of the club he will have a place there.
The former captain is currently finishing up the season at the Spanish Granada, who failed to save from relegation and is of the opinion that the Frenchman prefers to work with more quiet people, not with those who are willing to stand up for their opinions.
The 50-year-old former defender won 10 trophies for 19 seasons at the club, as currently there is a statue in front of the Emirates and for much of a fan he remains the symbol of the Gunners.
`Maybe Arsene thinks it will be too challenging for him. He apparently prefers helpers like Pat Rice and Steve Bould, who also have a history with Arsenal, but are not ready to enter into conflict and to create tension.`, Adams wrote in his autobiography.
`Arsene is a too dominant personality who probably wouldn`t like it if I said we get light goals, I am going to work today with defense. His essence is not the typical coach and that is the second reason why I think he doesn`t want me. Some time ago I said that coaching is not his strongest trait, which was accepted badly and realized that while he is there for me there is no place at the club.`, he said.
Adams reveals that Manchester United wanted him on two occasions - in 1991 and 1996, but in either case, he refused, firstly because in London he felt great because of alcohol, and then due to the fact that the club has had much uncertainty after the arrival of Wenger.
