- Freddie Lungberg says he is proud of his Arsenal players despite Man City loss
- Ljungberg praised the young players who finished the match in north London
- He vowed to ‘deal with’ Mesut Ozil after his angry reaction to being substituted
Arsenal interim boss Freddie Ljungberg made the baffling claim that he was ‘proud’ of his players despite watching his team pummelled by Manchester City.
Kevin De Bruyne masterminded City’s comprehensive win at the Emirates but Ljungberg refused to criticise his players, saying: ‘They are the champions. I was proud of our boys. When you look at the age of the side that finished it was not an old side.
‘We all have to look in the mirror and try to see.’

The frustration of Sunday’s defeat got the better of Mesut Ozil, who reacted angrily after being substituted in the second half.
Ozil was even jeered by a small section of fans at the Emirates and Ljungberg indicated he will talk to the World Cup winner about his actions.
‘For me, I took Mesut off because I wanted more energy in the team,’ said Ljungberg.
‘How Mesut wants to react is up to him and that’s something we’ll deal with later. Of course we want players in the right way.’
