Tony Adams has been appointed the boss of La Liga strugglers Granada until the end of the season.
The former Arsenal defender takes on his first head coach role since departing Azerbaijani club Gabala in 2011.
Adams, 50, was appointed as the Spanish club’s sporting director by the Chinese owner, Jiang Lizhang, last week but will now be in charge of the first team in an attempt to avoid relegation after defeat on Sunday against Valencia left them seven points from safety
“After assessing the situation the team is in, Granada CF has decided to part company with Lucas Alcaraz and his coaching staff,” read a club statement. “In his place, the club has total confidence in Tony Adams, vice-president of DDMC, as head coach of Granada CF until the end of the season.”
