Arsenal caretaker manager, Freddie Ljunberg, has urged the club to appoint a permanent coach, following the 3-0 thrashing at home by champions, Mancheater City, on Sunday.
Kevin De Bruyne scored twice at the Emirates and set up Raheem Sterling for City’s other goal to leave Arsenal in ninth in the Premier League
The Gunners have recorded just one win in their last 12 games in all competitions.
Ljungberg has been in charge for five of the matches, but is hoping a permanent appointment can be made before next weekend’s trip to Everton.
“It is a great honour to do this, but I’ve said I think it needs to be cleared up, to make a decision so that everybody knows,” Ljungberg said.
“It is totally up to the club. I try to do things as well as I can but it would be good to make a decision, regardless of what it is.”
There was little doubt that City would bounce back from the derby defeat to Manchester United last weekend, with the loss leaving them 14 points behind table toppers, Liverpool.
However, De Brune opened scoring for the Pep Guardiola’s side under 90 seconds.
Gabriel Martinelli had Arsenal’s only shot on target in the first minute, when Ederson blocked from his fellow Brazilian.
City countered and Gabriel Jesus’ low cross found the Belgian, who stroke the ball into the roof of the net.
The visitors doubled their lead 15 minutes into the game, with De Bruyne squaring for Sterling to slot home his 16th goal of the season, before grabbing his brace.
