Arsenal interim boss, Freddie Ljungberg, cannot take charge of the club beyond February, the UK Mirror reports.
Ljungberg stepped into the role on Friday following Unai Emery’s sack by the club hierarchy.
However, the Swede also holds a UEFA A Licence and does not have a UEFA Pro Licence.
This implies he can only manage in the Premier League and European competitions for 12 weeks.
Ljungberg has done his coaching courses at the Football Association of Wales’s (FAW) highly respected programme, which has also been attended by the likes of Thierry Henry and Mikel Arteta.
But after his appointment on an interim basis, Arsenal could seek some form of special dispensation, if he impresses while in charge.
