Freddie Ljungberg has announced that he leave his role as Mikel Arteta’s assistant manager this summer to progress his own managerial development.
The Swede had his first taste as a first team head coach when he took the reins from Unai Emery as Arsenal’s interim head coach in December.
Ljungberg in a statement posted on his twitter handle said: “I have decided to leave my first-team assistant coaching role at Arsenal to progress my management experience.”
