Freddie Ljungberg does not deserve to see his legacy ruined.
Freddie is a legend and will always remain one, however, he risks staining that legacy the longer he stays.
This is not his fault, he is very inexperienced at managerial level and has no chance of turning this situation around.
Yes, his team selections have been wrong and so have his tactics but he is out of his depth and the board should never have put him in this situation in the first place.
The Swede has inherited a bunch of players that have no desire, are an embarrassment to the shirt and simply do not care.
And half of them are just not good enough.
It is going to take huge money and a world-class coach to dig Arsenal out of this mess and Freddie is not the man for the job.
He needs to go to the board and tell them he is incapable of managing this lot. No one will hold that against him, he can come back and he may still have a career in management later down the line.
The board and players have no right to inflict this damage on a man that has served this club so well for so long.
The longer he stays the worse it will get because there are some tough games coming up, games Arsenal will struggle to get anything from.
Freddie needs to do the best thing for Freddie Ljungberg and get out while he can and retain his legacy.
