Arsenal hero Freddie Ljungberg has been backed to replace Unai Emery with Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Wolves increasing the pressure on the Gunners boss.
Arsenal have been linked with appointing Freddie Ljungberg as their new boss amid their struggles under Unai Emery.
And, in the wake of their 1-1 Premier League draw with Wolves on Sunday, the Independent say the former Gunners star is ready to step in as caretaker boss should Emery’s head roll.
The Spaniard is under pressure at Arsenal. His side have not won four of their last five games with the draw against Wolves coming after defeats to Sheffield United and Liverpool, as well as another stalemate with Crystal Palace.
Arsenal want to resist calls to sack Emery until the end of the season.
But the report says that Ljungberg is ready to spectacularly step in as caretaker should they have a change of heart.
They’d still rather give Emery time to turn things around, particularly given he steered them to the Europa League final last season.
But they’re aware that the feelings of anger among fans are rising and that, simply put, they should be doing better.
Arsenal thought Emery was the right man to replace Arsene Wenger in 2018, choosing the 47-year-old over the likes of Mikel Arteta and Patrick Vieira.
