While responding to Paul Scholes, Freddie Ljungberg has hit back at him following the unwarranted criticism from the former Manchester United midfielder.
As you reckon, Ljungberg took charge of Arsenal first team as an interim manager at the weekend, His first game as a manager ended with a 2-2 draw against Norwich City.
Whilst some post-match analysis has blamed his poor defense, Scholes did not blame the player but aimed dig at Ljungberg.
Sky Sports cameras captured a scene where the Arsenal legend arrived at Carrow Road sporting with a grey jumper and shirt combination.

However,Paul Scholes unimpressed with Ljungberg after he claimed he should have dressed more formally.
“You would think he’d be out in a suit to show a bit of proudness that he took the job,” Scholes said on Premier League Productions.
“To me that’s a great start – shirt and tie to show some discipline.
“I don’t think he’ll be the right man.”
Ljungberg has since hit back at Scholes by insisting it’s his decision over what attire he wears on matchday whilst also revealing that he is yet to be fitted for a suit.
“I’ve seen coaches with a tracksuit, suit and sweater and I’ll decide on matchday what I will where,” Ljungberg said during his pre-Brighton press conference at London Colney.
“I haven’t been fitted for a club suit but you will know what I where.
“That’s extremely important. It happened so quickly that the suit was at the dry cleaners and I couldn’t get it ready,” he joked.
When Ljungberg was asked to comment he said there isn’t exactly dress code for managers in the Premier League.
