Arsenal fans are elated after club legend Freddie Ljungberg was named the interim manager following Unai Emery’s sacking.
The Basque-born coach was sacked after the Gunners lost 2-1 at home to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League last night.
It was announced that the Swede would take over on an interim basis with one fan labelling him as his favourite player growing up.
My favourite arsenal player growing up, a true legend. He’ll do well in the short term before a main appointment is made. Let’s go Freddie son

Ljungberg enjoyed a brilliant career in north London, featuring 326 times as he contributed over 100 goals and won two Premier League titles (via Transfermarkt).
However, James Benge moved to allay such fears as he revealed the former Swedish international had all the ‘appropriate licenses’.
Fans were elated about Ljungberg’s appointment as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
