The article states that those at the top of the Gunners’ hierarchy hoped Freddie Ljungberg’s appointment as interim manager would buy them some time to find a permanent replacement for Unai Emery, but after having taken just one point from his first two matches in charge, that initial optimism has dissipated.
As a result, it is claimed that the club are now facing a “full-blown crisis”, with suggestions that those in charge are becoming increasingly fraught with the situation.
How bad are things at Arsenal right now?
It’s a big question, and simple answer is that it’s hard to remember a time when things looked as bleak in North London as they do right now.
As to finding a meaningful solution, things don’t look so simple.
The obvious thing to do is to appoint the right man on a permanent deal, but that is much easier said than done.
Ljungberg’s appointment looks to be a bit of a garbage fire already, and it was always going to be a gamble bringing in somebody who has no managerial experience when the club are in such dire straits.
Subsequently, the best thing the Gunners can do is turn to somebody who knows the league, knows how rigorous it can be, and who can steady this ship as soon as possible.
