FREDDIE LJUNGBERG has explained his decision not to wear a suit on his Arsenal managerial debut – it was still at the dry cleaners!
After donning a sweater and trainers for the 2-2 draw at Norwich, Paul Scholes claimed a suit would have “shown some discipline”.
Such a discussion is of no interest to Ljungberg and the interim Gunners boss remarked that he didn’t even have a suit ready for the game.
He told reporters on Tuesday: “The suit was at the dry cleaners so I couldn’t get it ready.
“I’ve seen coaches with a tracksuit, with a suit, a sweater so I’ll decide on matchday what I’ll use.
“I haven’t been fitted for a club suit but I will make sure you know what I wear.”
Plenty of managers don’t always wear suits to games, not least Scholes’ former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
And the ex-midfielder himself didn’t don a tie for his unveiling at Oldham earlier in the year.

Speaking after Arsenal’s game, Scholes had said: “You would think he’d be out in a suit to show a bit of proudness that he took the job.
“To me that’s a great start – shirt and tie to show some discipline.
“I don’t think he’ll be the right man.”
Fans will be on tenterhooks when Ljungberg reveals his attire for Arsenal’s game with Brighton on Thursday, kick-off 8.15pm.
