Former England and Arsenal captain Tony Adams has been appointed head coach of Granada until the end of the season.

Adams replaces Lucas Alcaraz, who was sacked on Monday after a 3-1 home defeat by Valencia that leaves them 19th in La Liga.

The 50-year-old had been working at the Spanish club since November and is vice president of the company owned by Granada’s club president.

His first game will be at home to Celta Vigo on Sunday.

Adams left Azerbaijan side Gabala in 2011 and previously managed Wycombe Wanderers and Portsmouth.

He has worked alongside Granada’s president John Jiang in his role as vice president of the Chinese businessman’s DDMC company and has been sporting director for Chinese Super League club Chongqing Dangdai Lifan.

Adams played 669 times for Arsenal between 1983 and 2002, spending 14 years as captain, and won 66 England caps.
