‘Something special’: Aubameyang opens up about Ljungberg at Arsenal
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says that Freddie Ljungberg can bring "something special" to the Arsenal team
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang believes that Freddie Ljungberg can bring “something special” to the Arsenal team.
The former Sweden international has been place in temporary charge at The Emirates after Unai Emery was given his marching orders last month.
Ljungberg’s first game in charge of the Gunners was a 2-2 draw with Norwich City in the Premier League at the weekend, with Aubameyang scoring both of Arsenal’s goals at Carrow Road.
Arsenal are now preparing for their home Premier League clash against Brighton and Hove Albion at The Emirates on Thursday night as they bid to pick up their first win under their interim head coach.
Aubameyang seems to think that Ljungberg is the perfect man for the temporary job after having been brought in as the club’s interim boss while they look for a new permanent manager.
Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Aubameyang said: “He can give us something special.
“If I’m not wrong, he was part of the Invincibles. His career speaks for itself. We will try to follow him and give the best for him.
“Everybody is respectful of Freddie. He played for Arsenal, he knows as a player how we feel. It’s interesting to have him ‘We had only one [training] session with him, maybe two for those guys who didn’t play on Thursday.
“We will see this week what is going to happen. I think it’s good for us. He played for Arsenal and he has this in his heart.”
Arsenal are aiming to try and break back into the top four this season after they finished fifth in the table last term.
They have struggled to find consistent form all season and they have only managed to win four Premier League games in the top flight this term.
Arsenal have not won the Premier League since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
