British Soccer Legend Goes to Azerbaijan to "Create History"
Looks like the young Azerbaijani soccer club Gabala is in safe hands now. Premier UK soccer player and sports manager Tony Adams is coming to town to coach the team for between five to 10 years. Adams has vowed to bring the small-town club to the highest international standards. Mark my words, the former Arsenal defender said, we “are definitely creating history” here!
If local media is to be trusted, Baku may need to pony up an annual bill to the tune of 1.5 million pounds, or about $2.2 million. Tony insists the actual bill is lower, but even so, what’s a couple of million between true soccer fans?
