Arsenal legend linked to Brøndby job

Tony Adams has some solid Danish connections

Arsenal and England legend Tony Adams is being hinted at as a possibility to take over the coaching reins at Superliga side Brøndby IF.

The Azeri club Gabala, which employs Adams as the sporting director, has confirmed the interest from the Danish team, which has seen a fair share of drama in recent months.

“I know that Brøndby is one of several clubs that have shown interest in Tony Adams,” Zaur Azizov, the head of Gabala, told BT.

Danish connections
Adams, who played over 500 games for Arsenal and won 66 caps for England, was in Denmark recently visiting John ‘Faxe’ Jensen, his friend from the old Arsenal glory days.

Brøndby are looking for a new coach to take over from interim coach Auri Skarbalius after this season and Adams, along with Chelsea legend John Terry, have been among the big profile names being considered.

Adams’ managerial career has been rather modest so far, but as a player he won four Premier League/First Division titles, three FA Cups, two League Cups, and a UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup.
