Former England and Arsenal captain Tony Adams has been appointed Granada coach until the end of the season, the Spanish top-flight club have announced.

Adams replaces Lucas Alcaraz, who was in his third spell in charge of Granada but was sacked in the wake of the 3-1 defeat at home to Valencia on Sunday which left them stuck in the bottom two of LaLiga.
