“So why haven’t they gone out and got some decent centre-backs and the attacking-type, passing, technical midfield players? That’s a recipe for disaster.”
Interim boss Ljungberg was criticised over the weekend by Manchester United legend Paul Scholes for not wearing a suit on the touchline during his first match in charge at Carrow Road.
Scholes has received criticism himself for his views but Allen agrees with the former midfielder and says the Arsenal manager should be dressed smarter than Ljungberg was.
“I think if you’re the manager of the Arsenal Football Club, you’ve got to wear a white shirt, red tie, and the Arsenal suit, like everybody does at the top at Arsenal,” Allen added.
