Auba - Freddie can give us something special

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Freddie Ljungberg

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has seen enough of Freddie Ljungberg to believe he can give the squad "something special".

The former Sweden international took charge for the first time as our interim head coach on Sunday as we drew 2-2 with Norwich, and afterwards Aubameyang spoke about the impact he can make.

"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."
