Arsenal legend Tony Adams says former manager George Graham is a better coach than current boss Arsene Wenger.

The Frenchman has been under fire recently as he has not won any silverware for six years, and the Premier League for seven.

Wenger is under pressure to go against his beliefs and spend money on big-name signings, and has promised to do so following a disappointing campaign that promised so much.

Adams, who the league title under both coaches in 504 appearances for the club, has also stuck his boot into Wenger, who many regard as the club’s greatest ever manager.

Currently coaching in Azerbaijan, Adams has ambitions of reaching the Champions League knock-out rounds and facing Arsenal.

“No disrespect to Arsene, but George’s coaching ability, defensive structure and technical ability, for me, is far better,” Adams told the Daily Mirror.

”It’s his strength, and that was George’s particular strength. I think Wenger is a magnificent physiologist and psychologist. Those are the areas where he excels.”

“Maybe not this year, but next season, I might have a chance of winning the Azerbaijan league title with Gabala and going into the Champions League qualifying rounds.

“We could even play Arsenal, but they are struggling to get in the top five now, aren’t they? Who knows?”
