Standard Liege vs Arsenal: What has been said?

Freddie Ljungberg claims he has yet to hold talks with senior figures at Arsenal over the full-time managerial vacancy.

“That’s not a conversation I’ve had with the bosses,” he said when asked if he still saw himself in the running.

“My job is to go from day to day, game to game, to try to help this fantastic club. That’s what I try to do. All of those decisions are up to the top dogs.

“I’ve been asked this question a lot since I took over and I just try to concentrate on my job – that is to win football games and get us to play better football.

“What the club decides to do or who they choose it is totally up to them but I stay totally out of it.”
