Besiktas midfielder Elneny: Give Ljungberg Arsenal job to June

Besiktas midfielder Mohamed Elneny supports Freddie Ljungberg being in charge at Arsenal.

Elneny is on-loan this season at Besiktas from the Gunners.

Ljungberg has said he is working game by game but, if Arsenal cannot find a long-term manager, Elneny believes the former Sweden international can take charge for the rest of the season.

"Yeah, 100 per cent," said the 27-year-old, who joined from Basel in 2016.

"I worked with Freddie before I left and he's a really good coach. Why can't he continue if Arsenal don't find the new coach."

Of his own future, Elneny stated: "I'm 100 per cent focused on Besiktas now, I want to win the league and the cup.

"It feels like it's my home now, I'm happy here, we play good football with a really good coach.

"The team will become stronger every game and I have a really good chance to be successful with this team."
