image for Tony Adams Admits He Wasn't A Very Good Manager
Pompey fans outside Fratton Park today

Sacked Portsmouth manager Tony Adams has admitted in an interview that he knew he wasn't a very good manager, but feels he was left with little choice when former boss Harry Redknapp jumped ship to go to Tottenham Hotspur.

Adams, 40, was speaking after he had been booted out of his Fratton Park job after just three months in the chair. In that time, Pompey have won just 2 of 16 Premier League games, and were unceremoniously dumped out of the FA Cup at home by Swansea City.

This was even worse than his record at Wycombe Wanderers, where his team won only 12 of the 53 games for which Adams was in charge, and he appears to have qualified for the post merely by 'once being a decent player'.

Adams told BBC Radio 5 Live that, after former boss Redknapp chose Spurs ahead of 'his beloved Portsmouth', he felt he couldn't leave the club in the lurch. He said :

"Arm not very good. Ar fort ard give it a go, but arm a bit crap at it. Ar'll get me coat!"
