Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, who scored twice in the last match, is confident of the new manager’s abilities. The Gabonese claimed that Ljungberg know Arsenal inside out and is the right man for the job.

“He can give us something special,” Aubameyang was quoted by Metro.

“If I’m not wrong, he was part of the ­Invincibles. His career speaks for itself. We will try to follow him and give the best for him.

“Everybody is respectful of Freddie. He played for Arsenal, he knows as a player how we feel. It’s interesting to have him,” the Arsenal captain added.

“We had only one [training] session with him, maybe two for those guys who didn’t play on Thursday.

“We will see this week what is going to happen. I think it’s good for us. He played for Arsenal and he has this in his heart,” Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang insisted.
