Sources: Ljungberg tells squad to 'play the Arsenal way'

Craig Burley tries to pinpoint the exact moments where Unai Emery went wrong at Arsenal.
Jose Mourinho tips Unai Emery to return to management at a big club in the future.
The FC guys try to wrap their heads around the possibility of Massimiliano Allegri managing Arsenal.

Caretaker manager Freddie Ljungberg's message to the squad was to play the Arsenal way, when he addressed them for the first time since replacing Unai Emery, sources have told ESPN FC.

Emery was sacked following the 2-1 Europa League defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday and Ljungberg has replaced him on an interim basis.

Ljungberg, who won two Premier League titles as an Arsenal player and had been working as a first-team coach at the club, told the players to play the Arsenal way, with movement and energy. To have fun and give fun to the fans as well.

Sources have told ESPN FC that they listened and took it all on board.

On Saturday, the Arsenal squad will train in the morning before taking a coach to Norwich.

Following his appointment Ljungberg posted on Twitter: "However long I oversee Arsenal for I will give everything I have to put smiles on faces again. We have a busy few weeks ahead and the team needs your support. Let's get to work!"

The club are winless in all competitions in seven games and sit eight points behind fourth-place Chelsea in the Premier League after just 13 games this season.
