In the autobiography Sober, the former Arsenal captain Tony Adams has revealed many interesting details related to his life and career.
One of the details that both Arsenal and Manchester fans care about Tony Adams’s autobiography is that the former Gunners captain twice denied Sir Alex.
According to Tony Adams, the first time he denied Sir Alex was in 1991. Tony Adams said the legendary United manager used Bryan Robson, the former Reds captain as a broker for the deal.
In particular, when Bryan Robson and Tony Adams focused on England, Bryan Robson talked and persuaded Tony Adams to leave Arsenal to move to Manchester United. However, the former Arsenal midfielder who is now the Granada coach has politely declined his team-mate as well as Alex Ferguson.
Never gave up, according to Tony Adams, in 1996, when Arsene Wenger was due to be appointed Arsenal manager, Sir Alex also approached to lure the former England midfielder to United.
However, Tony Adams said, knowing the intention of Alex Ferguson is to strengthen United power and weaken Arsenal, so he once again refused to Old Trafford.
After two failures, Sir Alex has never contacted Tony Adams again. Also in his autobiography, Tony Adams revealed that he had four times been prevented from returning to work at Arsenal’s favorite team.
