Arsenal dumped by another club legend as Arsene Wenger’s Thierry Henry ultimatum backfires further

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has reportedly lost another club legend after Tony Adams took a job in China.

Earlier this summer, Wenger handed an ultimatum to record-goalscorer Thierry Henry, telling him that he could not work for the club if he wanted to continue with his role as a Sky Sports pundit.

According to The Telegraph, Henry was even prepared to do the U18 coaching role for free, but Wenger would not have it and the former striker chose the TV job.

Instead, Wenger offered the U18 position to former captain Adams on the condition that he began on a trial basis, as reported by The Telegraph.

Wenger’s decision not to allow Henry to combine his Arsenal role with his media work has now backfired further, claim The Telegraph, because Adams has left during his trial period to take a job with Chongqing Lifan.

Adams has three managerial stints on his CV to date.

He began as the boss of Wycombe Wanderers in 2003, before managing Portsmouth between 2008 and 2009.

Adams then had a brief spell in Azerbaijan with Gabala.
