Freddie Ljungberg slammed for sitting down the entire game against Eintracht Frankfurt.
After going seven games without a win, Arsenal has finally sacked Unai Emery.
The Gunners had to make the tough decision after seeing their team lose 2-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt despite going a goal up.
Arsenal have named former Gunners forward Freddie Ljungberg as their new manager on an interim basis, but John Hartson has slammed the Swede for the role he played in Emery’s sacking
Ljungberg has been Emery’s assistant this season and was beside the Spaniard as Arsenal struggled last night. However, the 42-year-old never stood up all night and Hartson has opined on how much of a help he was to Emery.
Hartson took to Twitter and tweeted: “Ljungberg was a great help to Emery last night, Sat down for 90 minutes.
“Surely you get in the managers ear if you can see what’s going wrong.. Emery had to go.”
I am not sure what Hartson’s point is here. So Freddie sat down for the entire 90 minutes, so what. Who knows if Emery even listened to him anyway.
This just sounds petty to me if I am honest, at least give the guy a game or two before you start criticising him. The fans get blamed but it is former players and pundits that are the first out the blocks having a go.
Maybe it is because Emery has gone and he had no one else to kick and just got bored.
