Arsenal have announced that Freddie Ljungberg will be assisted for tomorrow’s game against Norwich by Per Mertesacker.
The Arsenal Academy manager was the one responsible for bringing the former Invincible back into the fold after his sojourn at Wolfsburg under Andries Jonker.
We’ve yet to get a real grip on how long the Swede will be in charge, but in the short-term he’s got the BFG alongside him, and it was also suggested that another Invincible, Gilberto, could be involved.
With Edu as the club’s Technical Director, that wouldn’t be a big surprise, but until now he hasn’t held any coaching positions – although he did the same job as his compatriot now holds at Arsenal for Greek side Panathinaikos. He stepped down from that role in 2016.
The Gunners are looking for a first Premier League win since October 6th when they visit Carrow Road tomorrow, and some interviews with Freddie are due to drop this afternoon – so we should get a bit more clarity over his thinking.
We’ll bring you that here, of course, throughout the day.
