Straight after Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to Brighton last week, Mesut Ozil left the pitch gesturing angrily towards the sideline.
Some have suggested he was unhappy with Alexandre Lacazette, others than his ire was directed towards the dug-out and the decision to take the striker off when the Gunners needed goals.
Whatever the truth of it, it’s not something that’s bothering Freddie Ljungberg ahead of tonight’s encounter with Wet Ham at the London Stadium.
Asked about the incident by Sky Sports, he said, “I haven’t seen it, but what I’ve heard is that he was a little bit angry, but I think he should be angry.
“He should be angry with the team, with himself, with everything, because we want to win football games. I want angry players.
“There’s nothing more to it than that.”
He was also pressed on whether the German was in the right frame of mind to play this evening, and it was suggested the 31 year is key to Arsenal performing well.
“100%,” said Ljungberg about his readiness. “He’s a great football player, and I love his quality, we have other great players too but of course I want everybody to be happy.”
