Freddie Ljungberg will take charge of his first match at Emirates as head coach of the club on Thursday. The Arsenal legend took over from Unai Emery on interim basis after the Spaniard was fired for the team’s disappointing results.
Speaking ahead of this match against Brighton, he expressed how proud the moment will feel for him.
“It has been quite hectic, so I haven’t thought about it that much but of course it will be a proud moment. I
“thought it the other day, when I made my debut for the national team, when I made my debut here, and made my debut at Norwich as a manager, they are three of the proudest moments that I have had.
When asked about the whole issue around wearing a suit or not, he had this to say.
“It was so quick, the suit was at the dry cleaners so I couldn’t get it ready! No, I have seen the Premier League and seen coaches in a tracksuit, coaches with a suit, and I have seen coaches with a sweater, so I will decide on a matchday what I will use.
When asked if he had been fitted for a club suit, he said: “We will see if I have one or not, we haven’t had one fitted yet with the club suit but I can’t see that is a discussion but I will make sure you know what I wear.
Freddie takes charge of his first game at home and will look forward to having a winning start in front of the home fans. It will also be Arsenal’s first win in almost two months.
