    Freddie Ljungberg to rejoin Arsenal as Under-21 coach


    Joe Jones

    Arsenal have announced that Freddie Ljungberg will rejoin the club in July as head coach of their Under-23 side.

    The 41-year-old left the club to assist Andries Jonker at German club Wolfsburg in 2017, having previously coached Arsenal's U15 side and assisted their U19 side in the UEFA Youth League during the 2016/17 season.

    Academy manager Per Mertesacker said: "It's great to have Freddie back at the club. He brings great footballing experience and the highest possible levels of enthusiasm, energy and encouragement for our young professionals.

    "He understands the club's values and how important it is to give young players the opportunity to grow and develop. When Freddie left for Wolfsburg it was with the club's blessing and with a return to Arsenal some day in mind. Everyone knows Freddie loves the club and we look forward to him developing his career with us."

    "I'm delighted to be returning to the club," Ljungberg said. "Arsenal has always been a special place for me and I'm really excited at this opportunity to work with our U23 team.

    "I look forward to working with the talented young players we have at the club. I know many of them well and will work hard to help them continue developing and become the best players and people they can be."
