Arsenal hero, Tony Adams has warned Mikel Arteta against Arsene Wenger’s return to the Emirates.
Adams believes the club does not have a role that would allow the veteran Wenger to return to the North London side.
He warned that the 72-year-old could overshadow Mikel Arteta if the move were to happen.
Wenger left Arsenal in 2018, ending his 22 years reign as the club’s manager but has not been back to the training ground or the stadium since then.
And Arteta is insisting that he wants the former Monaco boss back at Arsenal but former Gunners captain Adams is unsure if the Frenchman would be the right fit.
“‘I love the man, Arsene Wenger is just a wonderful human being and the knowledge that he’s got, why wouldn’t you tap into that?” Adams told Stadium Astro.
“I think there’s a position for him – which I don’t think there actually is – because he’s working with FIFA at the moment.
“Arteta, when he’s been posed the question, he’s got to be respectful and say, ‘we’d love to have him’. I don’t see a position in the club where it would be possible for him to come in.
“We’ve got a director of football, Edu, we’ve got a managing director. I don’t think you want, like the [Manchester] United system where you’ve got Sir Alex Ferguson, a shadow hovering around the site when Arteta’s trying to do his stuff.
“I think that’s unwarranted pressure. I think it’s a no-go. I don’t think we’ll be able to tap into the vast knowledge of Arsene in some capacity.
“We haven’t got a board now. I don’t think it’s going to happen to be completely honest. I don’t think there’s a position in the club that would warrant Arsene coming back.”
