​Former Arsenal winger Freddie Ljungberg recently revealed he will return to the club to coach the U14 and U15s. The ex-Swedish international, who retired from playing in 2014, has taken the necessary steps to obtain a UEFA License. He will coach Arsenal’s youth squads and revealed his excitement at returning to the London club via his Twitter account.


Long-serving manager Arsene Wenger revealed the club are more than happy to allow him the experience of coaching a side, and now the likes of Thierry Henry and Freddie Ljungberg will be part of the Arsenal backroom staff for a short time. Having played a key role in the “invincibles” side 2003/04 that went the entire season unbeaten, the 38-year-old became a legend in his nine years at Arsenal.


He went on to score 72 goals in 328 appearances, winning two Premier League titles and three FA Cups between 1998-2007. His return to Arsenal will be met with real excitement from the supporters and players who looked up to him before they became senior players, and now Ljungberg could get a step closer to his dream of management.

The Swede will take charge of the U14s and U15s, and could well become a permanent staple in the coaching setup if he obtains his badges. He will have Arsene Wenger around the camp to ask for advice and there aren't many better mentors than the Frenchman.
