Interim Arsenal boss Freddie Ljungberg has called on the Arsenal board to appoint a new permanent manager after the Gunners lost 3-0 to Manchester City on Sunday.
Defeat at the Emirates means the Swede has won just one of his five games in charge since being handed the reigns after Unai Emery's sacking, and he wants the club to end the uncertainty surrounding the role.
"I think, as I've said to the club, it's a great, great honour to do this," said Ljungberg.
"Of course Per is the academy manager and he's doing two jobs in one go.
"I think it needs clearing up to make a decision so that everybody knows. That's something I've said. It's totally up to the club.
