Surprise at Tony Adams' appointment at Granada has been surpassed only by the managerial novice's choice of touchline fashion: specifically, a pair of Reggie Kray glasses and three-piece suit that was working just about 'fine' before he decided to strip down to the waistcoat on Saturday.
At that point during the entirely predictable 4-0 loss at home to Real Madrid, the former Arsenal captain began to take some stick from the opposition bench.
Luka Modric, Isco, Karim Benzema and Toni Kroos were caught on camera laughing as the 50-year-old stood alongside them shouting futile instructions to his team, with Isco, according to Spanish outlet Mara, even shouting "Waiter! A Coca Cola."
Funny stuff, Isco. Or possibly an honest mistake.
In any case, there was something slightly galling about the sight a bunch of feted young millionaires goading a man who, in his day, could have marked them so far out of game they'd might as well be sat in their Lambos outside listening to David Guetta.
They probably get paid more for warming their arses for 90s minute than Adam's playing for a year at their age, but then that's banter we suppose.
Adams will manage Granada until the end of the season.
