The Gunners have confirmed the appointment of Arsenal legend, Freddie Ljungberg as an ambassador on their official website and he will jet out to Asia next week on a promotional trip to promote the club’s pre-season tour there. The Swede spent ten years at Arsenal and was a fan favourite during some of the most successful years under Arsene Wenger.
In his time at Highbury and Emirates Stadium, Ljungberg was known for his darting runs behind the defence from wide areas and his deadly finishing – usually after being played in by a Dennis Bergkamp pass. Two Premier League titles and three FA Cups were the major honours he collected while at Arsenal, but his he is best remembered as being a major part of the famed ‘Invincibles’ side
The ‘Invincibles’ went the entire 2003/04 Premier League season without losing a single match.
“I’m honoured to take on this ambassadorial role,” he told the official Arsenal website. The Club has a special place in my heart as everyone knows and I’m looking forward to helping the Club grow.”
I think this is a really good thing all around, being one of The Invincibes is real good PR for the club, it will show the love that ex-players have on their club and help to spread it even further.
Good luck Freddie in your new role and welcome home!!!
