Arsenal insist Ljungberg has qualifications

Arsenal insist caretaker boss Freddie Ljungberg has all the necessary qualifications to stay in charge as long as needed.

The Swede has taken the reins after Friday's sacking of Unai Emery.

The Mirror says despite contrary reports, Ljungberg does have all his necessary coaching badges and Arsenal are baffled as to where that rumour came from as he is a respected youth coach and would not have got this far without qualifications.

Arsenal are hoping that Ljungberg can lift the mood after Emery's final weeks in charge left the club flat, the team in disarray and also doom at the training ground.

There had been ongoing concern about results but also performances and the hierarchy organised a meeting in the United States with owner Stan Kroenke and his director son Josh last Monday, just 48 hours after the Southampton game.
