Arsenal fans have been berating former Manchester United man Paul Scholes after his comments on Freddie Ljungberg’s attire for his side’s draw to Norwich City.
Scholes came out and slammed his former rival for not wearing a suit in his very first game as the club’s manager (via The Mirror).
The comments didn’t please the Emirates Stadium faithful as one fan took aim at the Premier League legend for his attire while manager of Oldham Athletic.

Scholes enjoyed a short stint as manager for Oldham Athletic, leaving after just 31 days in charge of the League Two side as he claimed he was ‘misled’ (via The Guardian).
Despite Ljungberg’s attire, Arsenal weren’t at their best as they extended their winless run in the Premier League to six games.
Fans took aim at the former English international after his jibe at Ljungberg for his attire as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
Scholes literally wore a jumper for his Oldham managerial debut

He can wear Speedos and a woolly jumper as long as he gets us back on track.

Scholes was a great player but an awful pundit

Let’s be real here
1. To start off, no one should listen to Paul scholes about management 🤣
2. He’s just jealous of the drip on display.
