I Want To Concentrate On Us - Freddie Ljungberg On Arsenal's Brighton Clash

Arsenal's Ljungberg wants to seek advice from Arsene Wenger

Arsenal 'make Patrick Vieira favourite to replace Unai Emery'

Ljungberg took charge of the North London side for the first time in Sunday's draw at Norwich, though while most pundits critiqued Arsenal's performance on the pitch, former England midfielder Scholes made the freakish criticism of the Swede's decision to wear a tracksuit during his debut appearance on the touchline.

Arsenal interim manager Freddie Ljungberg has insisted the Gunners must focus on doing what they do well, rather than worrying about what Brighton & Hove Albion do, ahead of meeting the Seagulls on Thursday night.

"I've done two training sessions now and I don't want to talk about the coaches before", Ljungberg told a pre-match news conference. And he probably has some things that he thinks are important that he can share with me and make me a better coach. That's not for me to judge. "It was good. But now we go forward".

"They try to play out, defend well, they look very organised but for me we need to concentrate on our own game".

"If you asked the players if they would take him now and I bet you a good 90 per cent of them would say yes".

A star of Arsene Wenger's celebrated Arsenal "Invincibles" team, he also forged a strong bond with Sven-Goran Eriksson when his countryman was England manager.

The 42-year-old club legend has been handed the reins at Arsenal on a temporary basis after the Gunners called time on Unai Emery.

Speaking in an interview with talkSPORT, Seaman said: "Yeah I've seen a lot of the people that have been mentioned and I was hoping someone like Patrick Vieira might get a chance of being in there. I'm in contact with him, but I haven't spoken to him because it's been a bit hectic, but it's on my list to do so", Ljungberg said, before confessing he has already borrowed what he can from the Eriksson handbook.

"Sven is intelligent, I spoke to him a lot when he was the manager of England because he was watching our games. I haven't been fitted for a club suit but you will know what I will use".

"He's a great coach".

"Freddie is fantastically committed, he's wanted to do this job for a long time, so he's got an opportunity".
