Paul Scholes slams Freddie Ljungberg for not wearing a suit in Norwich v Arsenal

Norwich City v Arsenal FC - Premier League

Freddie Ljungberg's tenure at Arsenal got off to a poor start on Sunday.

The Swedish manager took his side to Norfolk to play relegation threatened Norwich City at Carrow Road.

But his side were unable to come away with the win.

Arsenal fell behind twice in the game through goals from Teemu Pukki and Todd Cantwell.

But Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's brace saved them a point.

Paul Scholes was working as a pundit during the game.

And he made some bizarre comments about Ljungberg before the first whistle had even sounded.

Ljungberg wore a shirt and jumper before putting on an Arsenal jacket as the game kicked off.

And Scholes was not impressed as he slated his decision not to wear a suit.

"You would think he’d be out in a suit to show a bit of proudness that he took the job," Scholes told Premier League Productions, per the Metro.

"To me that’s a great start… shirt and tie to show some discipline. I don’t think he’ll be the right man."

Very odd.

And those comments look even more bizarre when you take into account what Scholes wore during his first game as Oldham manager.

Yep, you guessed it... a shirt and jumper.

It sounds like Scholes has some sort of grudge against Ljungberg following their battles during their playing days.

Scholes then tore apart Arsenal's centre-back pairing, Shkodran Mustafi and David Luiz, after the game.

"It’s no surprise, I think he [Mustafi] was at fault, possibly, for both goals," said Scholes.

"He doesn’t tackle, he should be having a nibble at the ball but he drops off so far because he’s so frightened of getting done.


"He’s just thinking about getting back to his goal, not going out and engaging with the player.

"He almost tries to get out of the way, instead of being a defender who’s desperate to stop the ball going in.

"He just lets people walk through him. David Luiz is not interested in defending, they [Norwich] cut through them almost at will.

"I think Norwich will be disappointed [with a draw] not Arsenal."
