Wrong Said Fred
Arsenal veteran, Freddie Ljungberg has offered an apology to the linesman who ruled Darren Bent's goal against the Gunners was onside after the Swedish wing man gave him what for.
I too initially thought it offside, but the margin was so small you have to give the attacking team the benefit of the doubt.
Ljungberg was hot headed in heat of the moment but upon reflection, feels he may have been 'harsh'.
"To be honest I was quite sure that [their goal] was offside but afterwards I was told that it was not. If we were a bit harsh on the linesman then we have apologise about that. It really looked very much like offside but I heard it was not." said Freddie
As for the rest of the game, Ljungberg was happy we showed great character to come back after going a goal down.
"We showed some character,' said Ljungberg. 'After they scored I felt we were playing a little bit too straight and too quickly.
"But then we controlled the game quite well with our passing and we went into the lead. They put us under pressure with some crosses but I felt we coped so I was very happy.'
