Freddie Ljungberg insists his Arsenal side will be committed to playing attacking, progressive football.

The club legend will take charge of his first match since being appointed as interim boss at Norwich on Sunday following the sacking of Unai Emery.

Arsenal’s board gave Unai Emery his marching orders on Friday following a shambolic defeat versus Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday with the Gunners having won just once in their last nine games.

While results were deemed unacceptable, Arsenal supporters had also grown tired of the Spaniard’s negative tactics, constant tinkering and baffling team selections.

Record signing Nicolas Pepe and star striker Alexandre Lacazette were both left on the bench on Thursday with Arsenal desperately searching for an equaliser.

Both looked distraught and disinterested marooned on the bench, and Freddie Ljungberg admits he needs to find a way to energise his squad to unlock its full potential.

‘I’ve been at Arsenal for a long, long time I like entertaining football, he told Arsenal’s official website.

‘Of course, at the same time you can’t conceded goals that’s the tricky balance to find.

‘For me happy footballers play the best football. That’s what I learned as a player. There is a time to work hard but at the same we must enjoy what we are doing.

‘Often if the players we have they enjoy playing offensive football it will make them more happy.’
