The return of Arsenal legend Freddie Ljungberg to the club is a move that has filled the winger with so much excitement.
The forward who played a vital role as part of the invincibles squad returned to Arsenal in a coaching capacity to take charge of the under 15s last month as he continues work on his coaching licence.
“I try to help the club, coaching the under-15s,” he told Arsenal Player. “It’s great, they are a great bunch of lads and the coaches are great as well. “I haven’t made a massive plan or anything like that yet. I coached some under-18s and I saw that they appreciated what I taught them. “They hadn’t seen it before. I’m trying to give something back to football at the moment and it feels great.”
The ex Sweden international was signed by Wenger from Halmstads in 1998. On arrival, he went on to enjoy 10 fruitful seasons with the Gunners making a total of 313 appearances for the club, scoring 71 goals, before heading out to join London rivals West Ham United for one season in 2007.
The thirty-eight year old then hung his boots in 2014 after a short spell with Mumbai City.
The Gunners have faithfully and happily welcomed the legend back to the club, it is his ability to unearth another Freddie Ljungberg that will however please the fans the most.
