Twist: What Ljunberg Said About His Arsenal Revealed

New Arsenal manager Freddie Ljungberg was left disappointed after his managerial debut could only yield a draw rather than his desire for a win.

Freddie Ljungberg is in temporary charge at Arsenal following the decision to sack Spanish tactician Unai Emery on Friday.

The former Arsenal winger was in charge of the Gunners as they maintained their winless run with a 2-2 draw at newly promoted team Norwich City.

It was the managerial bow for Freddie Ljungberg who was an assistant manager under the previous managerial setup of ex-Sevilla, Valencia and Almeria boss Unai Emery.

The Spaniard paid the price for a poor run of results which saw the Gunners go through seven matches in all competitions without a single win.

That winless run was extended to eight games as a result of the draw with Norwich City who could have easily won the week 14 Premier League game if they were more clinical in front of goal.

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno made several saves in the last quarter of the game to preserve a point for his team after a brace from skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang either side of the halftime interval had canceled out the first-half goals from the Norwich City duo of Teemu Pukki and Todd Cantwell.

In his post-match reaction to the game, Freddie Ljungberg said that he was not happy with the result as he wanted to start his managerial career with a win.
