Earlier this week, Paul Scholes suggested that Freddie Ljungberg wasn’t the right man for Arsenal because he didn’t wear a suit on the touchline for his first game in charge.
The former Manchester United midfielder and current miserable bell-end, said, “You would think he’d be out in a suit to show a bit of proudness that he took the job.
“To me that’s a great start, shirt and tie to show some discipline. I don’t think he’ll be the right man.”
There’s no hiding place from your own stupidity these days though, as it took Internet sleuths just minutes to find pictures of Scholes wearing a jumper during his short managerial spell with Oldham Athletic (Played 7, won 1).
At his press conference this afternoon, Freddie gave questions about his match-day apparel the kind of respect they deserved.
“It was so quick, the suit was at the dry cleaners so I couldn’t get it ready!,” he said in response to Scholes’ comments
“No, I have seen the Premier League and seen coaches in a tracksuit, coaches with a suit, and I have seen coaches with a sweater, so I will decide on a match day what I will use.
“I can’t see that is a discussion but I will make sure you know what I wear.”
It’s great that during a period when Arsenal are going through a turbulent time, with questions over the direction, the ownership and the running of the club in general, the press still have time to ask the really important questions.
We look forward to the club announcing Freddie’s sartorial choices along with the starting XI for each game.
