Bernd Leno looks to future under Freddie Ljunberg

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno admits Arsenal were lucky to escape with a draw in Freddie Ljunberg’s first match as interim boss.

Ljunberg took charge of the side for the 2-2 draw at Norwich following the sacking of head coach Unai Emery.

The same defensive frailties were evident at Carrow Road, and the Gunners number one believes Arsenal must improve at the back if they want to starting picking up wins.

“At the end it was confusing because in the first half we played exactly how we wanted but conceded two goals in transition,” said Leno.

“In the second half, we lost control of the game and we were lucky to draw. It's always strange and sad when a manager loses his job.

“I think Emery did a very good job for one-and-a-half years, but the club decided to change the manager and something in the team.

“We just have to look forward as we saw the team was different against Norwich,” he added.
