Ljungberg makes admission about Arsenal future

Ljungberg makes candid admission about Arsenal future ahead of Man City clash

December 14, 2019 By Ali M.
The Swede was handed the caretaker role but could be replaced soon.

Arsenal are gearing up for a crucial Premier League clash with Man City, but the conversation around the club continues to surround the uncertainty regarding the managerial position rather than the game.

Freddie Ljungberg was appointed as the caretaker after Unai Emery was sacked but the process to select their next permanent coach is still underway. Many sources, including David Ornstein, state that while the Swede isn’t in danger of being replaced immediately, he is also not guaranteed to stay until the end of the season.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s clash with the reigning champions of England, the former Invincibles winger made a candid admission about his future at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners next five league games will see them face Man City, Everton, Bournemouth, Chelsea, and Man United and Ljungberg admitted that he might not be around to learn from this tricky fixtures list.

“It is a very tough run of games that we have, so of course we will learn a lot,” Ljungberg said (as per Goal).

“I will if I am here, or you guys [the media] will learn a lot about our players.” 

Ljungberg has also revealed that the number of backroom staff he is working with is limited, but he has not been given license to bring anyone in until a decision is made on who the next permanent boss will be.

“The club have said I have to wait until they make a decision, so yeah, I can’t do anything at the moment [regarding coaching staff].

“I have Per [Mertesacker] but at the same time he is the academy manager, but he is helping me with coaching.”

Ljungberg then pointed out another issue at the club. While his predecessor Emery had a stacked staff to help him in his coaching adventures, the inexperienced Swede has not been handed the same privilege due to the uncertainty surrounding his future – a new coach could be brought in soon and he might demand a different coaching staff.

He added: “The club has said when they make a decision that’s it, or I am obviously leaving, or maybe then we can do something with the staff. But it is up to the club.

“It’s far from me to say [if an appointment should be made quickly]. If you look at the person who was here before, he had a lot of staff and maybe I don’t have so many. So if you keep on going like that for months and months, it’s not so easy. But that’s totally up to the club.”
