Newly appointed interim Arsenal boss Freddie Ljundberg is being lined-up as a potential replacement for Manuel Pellegrini as manager of West Ham United.
Ljundberg was given the job on Friday after Unai Emery was sacked, and will be in charge at the Emirates until such time as a full-time candidate has been identified. However, he could also be in line for the West Ham job should the Hammers’ board decide to sack Pellegrini, although the Chilean earned himself a reprieve by winning away at Chelsea on Saturday.
The 42-year old Swede is well regarded in coaching circles, having come through the various levels at Arsenal, and worked for a spell in Germany as assistant manager with Wolfsburg.
He also had a spell playing for West Ham after he left Arsenal, making 25 appearances for the, and scoring twice.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
