Arsenal youngsters happier working with Ljungberg over Emery

Arsenal's youngsters favour seeking advice from assistant manager Freddie Ljungberg ahead of boss Unai Emery, it has been claimed.

Football.London says some youngsters are more comfortable going to former youth team coach and Gunners legend Ljungberg instead of the Spaniard.

They claim some players don't feel Emery provides clear and concise instructions.

Youngster Bukayo Saka among others have publicly claimed they struggle to understand the former Paris Saint-Germain boss when he is trying to make a point.

The reports also claim if Arsenal decide to part ways with Emery, Ljungberg would likely take over in a caretaker capacity.

It would be a big gamble to put the Swede in permanent charge but the former winger does have desires to manage at the Emirates.
