First it was that he would work for free if the club he used to play for would put him on the board of directors even to go as far to say that he could make everyone a cup of tea.

Now the former Arsenal player is telling the club who they should sign and also who they should not sign, which in this case is Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

Adams has said that while he admires Rooney’s skill on the pitch he thinks it would be hard for the 27-year-old to handle all of the temptations that London has to offer saying: “I’m not sure Wayne Rooney could handle London, to be completely honest. That would be a massive risk,” said the 46-year-old.

“I don’t think it’s a question of finances. I think it’s his temperament and mentality. London is a different animal and it takes a different type of player.

“Wayne is unquestionably a super player and I’d love to see him at the Arsenal. Technically he’s fantastic but I’m not sure about him mentally, off the pitch, and his professionalism.

“I know Sir Alex Ferguson has dealt with Wayne brilliantly over the last few years and I’m sure Arsene Wenger could handle him, but I’m not sure. I wouldn’t like to spend my money on Wayne.”
