Tony Adams is on the brink of writing his own chapter in Spanish football’s book of shame… by leading Granada to a joint-record run of defeats.
The Arsenal legend, 50, took charge of the struggling La Liga outfit on April 10.
They have since lost all six games, and seen their relegation to the second division confirmed.
Granada play their final game of the season at home to mid-table Espanyol on Friday, when a seventh straight loss would equal the Spanish top-flight record.
Only two clubs have previously achieved the unwanted feat, including Racing Santander in 1928-29 under Patrick O’Connell’s management.
The Irishman, who played for Sheffield Wednesday, Hull and Manchester United, went on to have a 25-year spell coaching Spanish clubs – including a pre-World War Two stint with Barcelona.
Extremadura, managed by Josu Ortuondo, lost seven consecutive games in the 1996-97 campaign.
Granada have lost to Celta Vigo, Sevilla, Malaga, Real Sociedad, Real Madrid and Osasuna since ex-England skipper Adams took charge.
Real star Isco appeared to mock Adams during their 4-0 win.
His struggles are in marked contrast to his time with the Gunners, when he won a host of trophies including four top-flight titles, the Cup Winners’ Cup and three FA Cups.
He has previously managed Wycombe Wanderers, Portsmouth and Azerbaijan club Gabala.
