Arsenal has been urged to clarify their managerial position by their interim manager, Freddie Ljungberg.
The Gunners named the Swede as interim manager after they fire Unai Emery earlier, however, things haven’t changed at the football club and their latest 3-0 loss at home to Manchester City has pushed them closer to the relegation zone than they have been all season.
Ljungberg has won just one of his matches in charge, after their loss to Manchester City, he insisted that the club needs to clarify their managerial situation by naming a new permanent manager.
Ljungberg has been touted for the job and the club had such high hopes that he would do well, but his output hasn’t helped his cause and it seems he is more than willing to relinquish the position and head back to the club’s academy.
“I think, as I’ve said to the club, it’s a great, great honour to do this,” he said, as quoted by Talksport.
“Of course, Per [Mertesacker] is the academy manager and he’s doing two jobs in one go. I think it needs clearing up to make a decision so that everybody knows.
“That’s something I’ve said. It’s totally up to the club.
“I’m very honoured and trying to do things as well as I can, but I think that it would be good to make a decision regardless of what it is.”
Well, if the news today about Mikel Arteta is true then Freddie may get his wish sooner than later.
