Interim Arsenal boss, Freddie Ljungberg has responded to rumours linking sacked Napoli coach, Carlo Ancelotti to Gunners coaching job.
Ancelotti was sacked by Napoli on December 10 despite helping the club progress to Champions League last 16 after thrashing Genk 4-0.
As Arsenal continue to search for the next coach, several names have been linked for the job. Names such as Brendan Rodgers, Max Allegri and Mauricio Pochettino and now Carlo Ancelotti.
Ljungberg, who is temporarily in charge of Gunners team and also reportedly considered on permanent basis, spoke in his pre-match press conference ahead of the game against Standard Liege about Ancelotti rumours:
“I’ve been asked this question a lot since I took over and I just try to concentrate on my job – to win football games and get better. Who they choose it is totally up to them but I stay out of it,” he said.
The Swede also spoke about the club considering giving him Arsenal coaching job on permanent basis.
“Again, that’s not a conversation I’ve had with the bosses. My job is to go from game-to-game. All of those decisions are up to the top dogs.”
