Arsenal has already started interviewing candidates for their permanent manager according to reports in the media.
It seems Arsenal’s board have realized that keeping Freddie Ljungberg on as their interim manager for too much longer is untenable.
A report in The Telegraph is claiming that the Gunners have already started interviewing candidates for the vacant manager position.
Ljungberg was given temporary charge after the club fired Unai Emery for a poor 18 months in charge, he has failed to win any of his two games in charge and suffered an embarrassing 2-1 loss to Brighton on his home debut.
It would appear that club has now given up on keeping the Swede until the end of the season even though he is highly thought of.
The report claims that Arsenal’s board have placed Edu in charge of getting a new permanent manager and the former midfielder has already started talking to managerial targets who are currently out of job.
The plan is to get a manager who can start working immediately instead of going through the long process of getting a manager who is already working at another club.
It is unclear if the team is looking for a temporary fix at the moment because most of their top targets are either at another job or currently on holiday.
