Adams ponders job in Italy

Tony Adams
Adams was in Italy to continue his work with Adrian Mutu
Former Arsenal skipper Tony Adams could be about to resurrect his managerial career in Italy, BBC Sport understands.

Adams has been interviewed by Serie B sides Verona and Torino and also spoke to Juventus about the possibility of becoming their defensive coach.

The 38-year-old has made clear his desire to coach abroad in the past - but does not speak a word of Italian.

Adams resigned as Wycombe Wanderers manager last November after a poor start to their League Two campaign.

Adams was in Italy to continue his mentoring work with disgraced former Chelsea striker Adrian Mutu.

The Romanian was banned for seven months last November after testing positive for cocaine and Adams has been helping him get his life back on track since then.

Adams met Juve coach Fabio Capello - who he has described as his managerial hero - to discuss the possibility of continuing to mentor Mutu next season.

And he also discussed the possibility of becoming the club's defensive coach, although he was not subsequently offered the position.
