Tony Adams’ search for an assistant manager will go on following his admission that Martin Keown would not be accepting his offer.

He feels that Keown is happier working for the media at this point in time, but he might try for him again in the summer.

It had been thought that should he have accepted the post he would have been looking at something more part time so he could carry on his media commitments as well, but Adams is looking for someone more full time to help share the load – Dennis Bergkamp, another linked, also looks unlikely to join his former Arsenal teammate.

Adams has now said that he will take his time to ensure that he gets the right man in place, not only for himself, but also Portsmouth Football Club telling Sky Sports News: ‘I want it to be right. I want Portsmouth to have the right man.

‘I’m going to make sure it’s right for Portsmouth and for the fans. I want to make sure we get the right man to take this club forward.’

Our new manager also received the full backing of owner Sacha Gaydamak, who have an interview on The Quay today – there will be more on this tomorrow…
