‘Create something special’ Arsenal fans will love this after Aubameyang names possible next boss
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has claimed Arsenal caretaker boss Freddie Ljungberg can produce ‘something special’ as he has the club ‘in his heart’.
After a ton of months, a lot of speculation, and a number of poor results at the Emirates, the Arsenal hierarchy decided to get rid of Unai Emery and look to the future with a new manager that will be able to get the club back inside the top four and winning trophies.
But Aubameyang has backed Ljungberg to turn around the club’s fortunes and make himself a contender for the job, telling the Sky Sports website: ‘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.’
Aubameyang hopes to set a positive example for his team-mates after Ljungberg handed him the captain’s armband at Norwich.
‘I try to give the guys all my positivity,’ the Gabonese added. ‘As always, I try to be an example, working hard.
‘I think the mood is good. We tried to find more confidence in winning games. We try our best.
‘Unai Emery was sacked, now we have Freddie and we’re all focused on one thing, to be back winning.
‘Today we did maybe not a perfect game but a good job and we’ll try to win the next one. ‘We have positive things to take. We didn’t play bad, we played good.’
Look Ljungberg is loved by the Gunners and a real club hero, but he is not ready to lead the Arsenal side on a more regular basis right now and the Gunners need to hire a more experienced manager that can come in and get them back to the top of the game.
