Ljungberg joined Arsenal for a fee of £3million in 1998 and went on to win two Premier League titles, three FA Cups and a Champions League runners-up medal in nearly 10 years at the club.
The 39-year-old, who is now assistant manager at Wolfsburg, is fondly remembered by Arsenal fans.
Arsene Wenger bought Ljungberg without watching him play live, admitting he was convinced by his performance in Sweden’s 2-1 Euro 2000 qualifying victory over England in September 1999.

“I saw Freddie Ljungberg giving a hell of a lot of problems to Martin Keown while watching him on television as he played for Sweden against England,” the Gunners boss said in book ‘The Wenger Revolution: Twenty Years of Arsenal’.
“I decided to buy him then. He became a huge Arsenal player.”
Last season Ljungberg worked at Arsenal’s Academy coaching the club’s Under-15s before moving to Wolfsburg in February.
