Enjoy this selection of the best jokes as Tony Adams is appointed Granada manager until the end of the season.

The struggling La Liga outfit turned to the former Arsenal and England centre-back despite his less-than-stellar managerial career to date.

Unsuccessful stints in charge of Wycombe Wanderers, Portsmouth and most recently Azerbaijani club Gabala FC cast doubt on the wisdom of the appointment.

No wonder then that Twitter was brimming with jokes:

Easy to see why Granada have gone for Tony Adams. The last 2 British managers to go to Spain have done brilliantly. pic.twitter.com/feK1J73Juh

Tony Adams was a massive childhood hero of mine but I can't be the only one excited about the idea of him trying to talk Spanish?

As long as Tony Adams' Spanish accent is as fantastic as David Moyes', then we're all in for a treat.https://t.co/iIwqOY0GdM
