Freddie Ljungberg set for first-team coaching role

Arsenal under-23 coach Freddie Ljungberg is set for a promotion to a role with the first team next season.

Ljungberg, who returned to the club last season after a spell away with Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga, had a successful spell with the under-23s, helping them to a second place finish in Premier League 2.

Now his work is setto be rewarded with a new and enhanced role, although it is regarded as a supplement to the existing coaching staff, rather than a replacement for anybody. Steve Bould is staying at the club, despite reports to the contrary, whilst Juan Carlos Carcedo and Pablo Villanueva are also retaining their current jobs.

The 42 year old Swede had a glittering club career with Arsenal as well, winning two Premier League titles and three FA Cups. He was part of their Invincibles team that went through the entire 2003 – 2004 season unbeaten.
