Arsenal keeper Leno: After a bad time Ljungberg doing very good job

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno says the players are happy to have delivered caretaker manager Freddie Ljungberg a first win.

The 42-year-old replaced Unai Emery last month and oversaw his first victory at the helm as his side came from behind to win 3-1 at West Ham on Monday night.

Leno says he's more than happy to continue working under the Swede in the meantime.

"I do not know what the club is deciding," said the goalkeeper.

"We only have to focus on now. Freddie is doing a very good job. The team know about his quality and the way they want to play.

"We want to play with possession, keep the ball and also press very high, and also with transitions. It is not our decision, it is a decision of the club.

"From the first day he said he wanted to see laughing faces, to see a good atmosphere. We had a bad time, we are all human and it is not easy. It was not like we did not try, but it just did not work."
