Is Ljungberg going to be allowed to stay till the end of the season? by Lagos Gooner
Hello Arsenal family; how are we enjoying Arsenal this period? Are we getting impressed by our new form now or do we still feel there is a long way to go? With just two days to our big match against Man City, are we positive in our expectations?
While brooding over the issue of a new coach for Arsenal, I came up with a conjecture as to why we have not appointed a coach, and I came to the conclusion that the club may actually be looking at allowing Freddie manage the team until the end of the season; and then appoint a new manager who will start afresh with Arsenal next season. I may be wrong but these are my reasons;
Now, our form since the beginning of this season has been inconsistent; as a result, our former coach was sacked and his assistant was appointed on an interim basis. To many people, he was appointed as a stop gap measure, but to me I feel he was appointed to stabilize the team, re-motivate the players and probably prepare the club for the arrival of a world class coach.
The club is in shambles at this moment and the club probably needs the help of a former player to try talking to the players; making them see why they need to put all their troubles behind them and start playing to make a name for themselves in the prestigious red shirt of Arsenal.
With no heavy pressure on Ljungberg, he will return Arsenal to winning ways; try ending the season on a high, win the Europa league and then leave the club for an incoming manager; probably for Pochettino.
The trend among the big clubs these days, seems to be to appoint a former player of the club to steady the boat temporarily, repair the strained relationships between the club and the players, and then re-build the confidence of the club’s under-siege stars. So far, Freddie is doing well in this regard.
Now, like I said earlier, my thoughts may not probably be the reason why the club has not announced a new manager yet but then, I am allowed to do a little guess work while awaiting the confirmation of a new manager, now or later. Bye for now.
