Former Arsenal Coach Arsene Wenger has offered to talk to Interim boss Freddie Ljunberg if the need arises
The coach of Arsenal’s famous Invincible squad said his “heart” is still with Arsenal and he is happy to talk to interim boss Freddie Ljungberg whenever he wants.
Ljungberg, who played under Wenger at Arsenal between 1998 and 2007, took temporary charge at Emirates Stadium after Unai Emery’s dismissal last week.
And the Swede says he would like to speak to his old boss before his first home game against Brighton on Thursday.
“If he has that need, then of course I will be available,” Wenger said.
“Freddie is fantastic and committed and will want to do this job for a long time.
“He has an opportunity and what you want in life is that opportunity. Let’s get him to work with his ideas and support him.”
The 70-year-old Frenchman, who left Arsenal in 2018 after 22 years as manager, declined to comment on his successor Emery’s dismissal but said his “heart is with the club and I want them to do well”.
Wenger was speaking in Belfast at a meeting of the International Football Association Board (IFAB), the body responsible for determining the laws of the game.
