We could see the likes of Robbie Burton and Tyreece John-Jules make their Arsenal first-team debuts under Ljungberg, as they are 2 players he rates highly and used consistently last season with the u23's.

However, Ljungberg - who was an assistant to Emery - told Sky Sports it was too early to say whether being a manager on a permanent basis would be to his liking.

"So it's been great to have him around, he knows the club's DNA and we feel he is the right person in the moment to take the club forward".

Freddie Ljungberg has been appointed the interim head coach of Arsenal after the club sacked Unai Emery and on Sunday he will name his first team against Norwich City.

"Its a great honour and that´s what I said to the players - ´you guys do the job and I´ll try to help and support you´".

Vieira was interviewed by Arsenal as a potential replacement for Arsene Wenger previous year before Emery was appointed. So today a new adventure begins with Freddie (Ljungberg) taking the reins. I want to do as well as I can for this fantastic club.

A relatively small al-Qaida presence, it said , "poses a very limited threat to US personnel and our partners in Afghanistan ". They were summoned from a nearby hotel to Mar-a-Lago after noon to hold an expected Trump conference call with troops.

Arsenal failed to win a game in their last seven games, with a number of points dropped at home in winnable games.

Speaking to Arsenal's website after addressing the team during training, Kroenke said: "Like all of our fans and supporters around the globe, we've been concerned about our recent string of performances". Try to concentrate about the game [at Norwich], not the future, try and win that and a few other games and then we will see. "I'm like you, I read, I look, I hear things, and that's it".

"Yes, of course. I think I get involved in the game".

"No, no indication of how long or how short".

"I have had experience of players and staff being really down and there are things in my opinion that you can do [to lift them], but at the end of the day if you play good football and get good results, there is nothing better to raise spirits".
