David Luiz has reacted on Instagram to Freddie Ljungberg stating that he has ‘decided to leave’ Arsenal.
Ljungberg was the first-team assistant coach at Arsenal, and after Unai Emery’s sacking in December, he took the main job on a temporary manager before Mikel Arteta stepped in.
Whilst Ljungberg saw Arsenal suffer some pretty low moments during the recently-concluded campaign, it ended on a high with the club lifting the FA Cup. And he was also to be praise as an assistant coach
Luiz’s message on Ljungberg’s Instagram read: ‘We will miss you, boss! God bless you. Always together’.
Also Joe Willock, who would have worked with the coach in the academy as
well as the first-team, wrote: ‘Thanks Freddie, going to miss you’.
It remains to be seen what one of Arsenal’s invincibles will do next and whether he will be locking horns against his former club in the near future.
Before Arteta took the job at the Emirates, there were questions as to whether Ljungberg should be given the post of head coach.But, at the time, the confidence and morale at the club was at an all-time low and everyone needed lifting.
Not many would have expected the finish to the season, especially the defensive displays the Arsenal players produced. So Arsenal board have no other option than to let him go.
