Tony Adams is new Portsmouth manager

By Soccer Blog | Oct 29, 2008

Days after the departure of Harry Redknapp to White Hart Lane, Portsmouth have appointed former Arsenal centre half Tony Adams as their new manager. Adams’s first game in charge of the South Coast club will be against league leaders Liverpool on Wednesday night. Adams has formerly managed Wycombe Wanderers and was assistant manager at Portsmouth for the past two years after taking over the position vacated by Kevin Bond in June 2006.

Adams has signed a contract which will see him stay at Fratton Park till the end of the 2010-2011 season.

The Romford born England international also took advice from Arsene Wenger before accepting the Pompey job.

Adams has already said that unsettled Portsmouth players can leave in the winter transfer window. With Redknapp having gone to Spurs, there are rumours floating around that Lassana Diarra, Jermain Defoe, Glen Johnson and Sylvain Distin are all going to follow their former boss to London.

    I’m glad to see Tony Adams is back. He is definitely one of the greatest players Arsenal ever had.
