Arsenal's interim manager, Fredrik Ljungberg, who took over for the sacked Unai Emery, believes that the players were scared and without confidence in the defeat to Brighton on Thursday.
- of Course it's disappointing, but we must go on. The players ' confidence is low, it is evident, says Fredrik Ljungberg to news agency Reuters.
- They were very afraid to get the ball and to move. They just stood quiet, he says to the british media the Mirror.
Thursday's defeat at the 1-2 was Fredrik Ljungbergs second match in a row on the bench as a manager.
the First leg was away at Norwich, which ended in a 2-2 draw.
With the defeat, Arsenal reached up to seven matches in a row without a single victory in the league, which is completely unheard of in the London club.
- We are in a difficult situation, we started the fight without energy.
- It is my job to get the players to be aggressive and play vigorously, he said to Reuters.
