“Sven is very intelligent. I spoke to him a lot when he was manager of England because he was normally watching our games,” said Ljungberg.

“I’ve seen stories in the past about how he treated players and made them feel good, so I’ve stolen a few of those ideas. He’s a great coach and I hope I’ll speak to him soon.”

‘My suit was at the dry cleaners!’

Arsenal interim head coach Freddie Ljungberg jokes he left his suit at the dry cleaners for his first game in charge at Norwich

Ljungberg, meanwhile, laughed off criticism

he received from Paul Scholes for failing

to wear a suit during his first match in charge

of Arsenal, joking it was still “at the dry cleaners”.

Speaking ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Brighton, Ljungberg was asked about his choice of outfit and laughed off Scholes’ comments.

“That’s extremely important,” he said sarcastically. “It happened so quickly that

the suit was at the dry cleaners and couldn’t

get it ready!

“I’ve seen in the Premier League coaches with

a tracksuit, I’ve seen coaches with a suit and I’ve seen coaches with a sweater so I’ll decide on matchday which one I will use.

“I haven’t been fitted for a club suit but I can’t really see that that’s a discussion. I will make sure you will know what I wear.”
