Arsenal caretaker manager Freddie Ljungberg has responded to a dig from pundit Paul Scholes over not wearing a suit for his first game in charge of the club.
The Swede got off to a tricky start with the Gunners as they drew 2-2 at Norwich City at the weekend, but Scholes had a slightly bizarre criticism to make, and it didn’t relate to the team’s performance.
"The suit was at the dry cleaners…" ?

Scholes was quoted by the Express and others as hitting out at Ljungberg for not showing more pride by wearing a suit for his first game as Arsenal boss, but the 42-year-old rather laughed it off in the video clip above.
Speaking to reporters at a press conference, Ljungberg said his suit was at at the dry cleaners and that he’ll decide what he wears on matchday.
