Paul Scholes Slams Freddie Ljungberg For Not Wearing A Suit In His First Arsenal Match

Paul Scholes Slams Freddie Ljungberg For Not Wearing A Suit In His First Arsenal Match

Paul Scholes has slammed Freddie Ljungberg for not wearing a suit in his first match as Arsenal manager.

Ljungberg was appointed on an interim basis following the sacking of Unai Emery and the club legend took charge of his first game on Sunday as Arsenal drew 2-2 with Norwich City.

He came under fire for his team selection as fans voiced their anger on social media and Manchester United legend Scholes also aimed a dig at Ljungberg for his match day attire.

The Swede sported a blue shirt underneath a knitted jumper complete with a pair of trainers instead of wearing the club's traditional navy suit.

"You would think he'd be out in a suit to show a bit of proudness that he took the job," Scholes said.

"To me that's a great start... shirt and tie to show some discipline. I don't think he'll be the right man."

Arsenal came from behind twice to earn a point with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang bagging a brace and Scholes picked out Shkodran Mustafi as their weak link.

"It's no surprise, I think he [Mustafi] was at fault, possibly, for both goals," he added.

"He doesn't tackle, he should be having a nibble at the ball but he drops off so far because he's so frightened of getting done. He's just thinking about getting back to his goal, not going out and engaging with the player.

"He almost tries to get out of the way, instead of being a defender who's desperate to stop the ball going in. He just lets people walk through him. David Luiz is not interested in defending, they [Norwich] cut through them almost at will. I think Norwich will be disappointed [with a draw] not Arsenal."

Arsenal sit in eighth place in the table with 19 points on the board ahead of entertaining Brighton on Thursday.
