Arsenal legend, Tony Adams, has been unable to rescue Granada from relegation into Spain’s second tier.

A 2-1 defeat against Real Sociedad confirmed their fate with three league fixtures remaining.

Previously sporting director, the former defender was given the manager’s job earlier this month after the side’s poor form under Lucas Alcaraz. It was deemed an impossible job and given such circumstances, this news shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.

Adams was heavily criticised in local newspaper outlets for changing the formation, playing players out of their favoured positions and even dropping some of their better stars too.

However, none of his methods have seemed to work.

They’ve conceded nine in four games since he took over and Adrian Ramos’ second-half header was their first goal under his management.

Juanmi’s late winner sealed Granada’s ninth league defeat in their last ten matches – perfectly reiterating the current problems which surround the club.

It’s cruel that relegation will now be etched on his managerial CV but he knew the risks attached to the job before accepting it.
