Former Arsenal captain Tony Adams has been appointed as the head coach of La Liga strugglers Granada until the end of the season.

Who Arsenal should sell in the summer

Granada have replaced Lucas Alcaraz with Adams after Sunday's 3-1 home defeat against Valencia left them 19th in the table, seven points from safety with seven games to play.

Adams, 50, who spent his whole playing career with Arsenal, winning four league titles, has previously managed Wycombe Wanderers, Portsmouth and Gabala.

The ex-defender spent 22 years with the Gunners, and is widely considered to be one of the best players to have played for the club.

Adams won four First Division and Premier League trophies with the Gunners, along with three FA Cups and the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup.
