Adams predicts end of Wenger era

Arsenal legend Tony Adams believes manager Arsene Wenger is coming towards the end of his historic tenure and has put himself forward as a candidate to take over.

Cross:  Panic at the Emirates
Mangan:  Gunners will have to make do

Adams still commands the respect of all Gunners supporters after his lengthy stint as the club’s captain, but his managerial record at Wycombe and Portsmouth did not suggest he was ready to take on the mantle at his beloved Arsenal.

However, the ambitious Adams insists he is ready to step into the breach if Wenger moves aside, even though he admits that the current Arsenal squad is not strong enough to challenge for major honours any time soon.

“To keep hitting the top four and qualifying for the Champions League is great, but there is going to come a day, and that won’t be far away, when Arsene leaves. One hundred per cent I’d like to be Arsenal manager,” Adams told Zapsportz.com.

“Of course my heart says, 'Yes, yes, yes', but my head says, ‘Can I win with this current team?’ My answer is no, I can’t and I am not sure anyone can.

“For a long time he has been a one-man band, but that won’t happen again. The next man appointed will be the head coach, not the manager.”

Adams has joined the chorus of Arsenal supporters who believe Wenger’s reluctance to spend big money in the transfer market is holding back the club’s ambitions, while he has also suggested the wage structure at the club needs to be reviewed.

“I know Arsene would not spend £25million on buying Bayern’s goalkeeper Manuel Neuer for example, no matter how much he might need a new keeper,’’ added Adams. “I think that is a great policy, but the club needs to restructure its wages spent, that is a vastly different matter.

“The club are paying in excess of £150million on wages but there have been a lot of average players on £50,000-a-week when the big teams now need four or five players on a lot of money. Arsenal do not attract those big players because of their wages structure.”
