Gilberto Silva and Freddie Ljungberg

Freddie Ljungberg has given his clearest hint that he would favour a swift resolution to Arsenal’s search for a manager, with the club unwilling to sanction the creation of a new backroom team until they have decided whether he will continue in the role on anything more than a game-by-game basis.


Ljungberg said “The club have said I have to wait until they make a decision, so I can’t do anything at the moment,” he said when asked whether progress had been made in enlisting reinforcements. “I have Per [Mertesacker] but at the same time he is academy manager. He is helping me with the coaching. The club has said when they make a decision then that’s it – or I’m leaving, obviously – and maybe then we can do something with the staff. But it’s up to the club. If you look at the person who was here before, he had a lot of staff and maybe I don’t have so many. So if you keep on going like that for months and months, it’s not so easy. But that’s totally up to the club.”
