Arsenal caretaker boss Ljungberg: No word from board about my chances

Arsenal caretaker boss Freddie Ljungberg admits he hasn't heard from the board about his status.

Ljungberg insists he doesn't know if he is in the running for the job on a permanent basis with Carlo Ancelotti, Mikel Arteta and Patrick Vieira among the bookmakers' front-runners.

“I haven't got any indications of whether I'm here or not," he said.

“I've said to the bosses I will do everything in my power to do as well as I can for this club and the players. Then obviously it is up to them to make a decision.

“I try not to put any emotions into that. It's totally business and up to them.

“Should it be a quick decision? That's far from me to say."
