'He can give us something special' - Striker backs Ljungberg to succeed at Arsenal

Arsenal manager Freddie Ljungberg has received backing from club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang despite drawing his first match in charge. 

The Swede was installed as the club's head coach on an interim basis and was in the dugout for the first time as Arsenal drew 2-2 against Norwich on Sunday evening. 

Aubameyang, however, feels Ljungberg has what it takes to lead the club to new levels and can achieve something special together. 

"Everybody is respectful of Freddie," our club captain said. "He played for Arsenal, he knows as a player how we feel. It’s interesting to have him. 

"We had only one session with him, maybe two for those guys who didn’t play on Thursday. We will see this week what is going to happen. For me personally, I think it’s good for us. He played for Arsenal and he has this in his heart.

"He can give us something special. He was part of the Invincibles - his career speaks for itself. We will try to follow him and give the best for him."

The Gabon international scored a brace as the Gunners came twice from behind to force a 2-2 draw against the Canaries. 

The draw meant the London side remained eighth on the table with 19 points, 21 off league leaders Liverpool. 

They next host Brighton at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night.
