Tony Adams has been appointed Granada coach until the end of the season
Adams replaces Lucas Alcaraz, who was in his third spell in charge of Granada but was sacked in the wake of the 3-1 defeat at home to Valencia yesterday.
The 50-year-old Adams is vice-president of DDMC – a company owned by Granada president John Jiang – and has been working with the Spanish outfit since November.
Granada are 19th in the table, seven points adrift of safety. They have failed to win in the league since their 1-0 victory over Alaves on March 1.
A club statement read: "After evaluating the situation in which the team is and the sensations the team had been showing after recent results, Granada has decided to end the time of Lucas Alcaraz and his coaching staff in charge of the first team.
"In his place, the club place all their confidence in Tony Adams, vice president of DDMC , as head coach of Granada until the end of the season.
Adams won four league titles, three FA Cups and the League Cup during his time at Arsenal
"The club puts its faith in Tony Adams as head coach until the end of the season.
"Granada CF wants to thank Lucas Alcaraz and his coaching staff for their personal and professional commitment and dedication, and wishes him the best of luck for the future."
Adams won 66 England caps during his playing career – after which he moved into management.
He's had a short spell in charge of Portsmouth and has also taken charge of Wycombe and Gabala in Azerbaijan.
But it was his time at Arsenal where he enjoyed most success. Adams won four league titles, three FA Cups and the League Cup during his days as a Gooner.
