Robert Pirès after Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Norwich: “The team is still sick.”

Speaking to Canal Plus, Robert Pirès reflected on Arsenal’s 2-2 draw at Carrow Road this afternoon with Norwich in Freddie Ljungberg’s first match in charge.

“I felt the same way as Jérémie (Aliadiere), this was a complicated and difficult game, stressful even sometimes. The bottom line is that the team is still sick. Freddie or someone else, they are going to have find the right medicine. They are going to have to be patient but this is a little bit what has been happening since the start of the season. We are weak, we are not calm. Jérémie knows this when you are lacking confidence, you take less responsibility. You try fewer things. I think going forward things look very good, but defensively, and Freddie knows this, with Per, a lot of work is required.”
