Former Gunners midfielder Freddie Ljungberg visited Arsenal’s London Colney training ground last month, just weeks before he made his move to MLS minnows Seattle Sounders.
The 31-year-old Swede was present at the Gunners’ Hertfordshire-based centre and visited Head Chef and close pal Rob Fagg.
Infamous for his underwear exploits with Calvin Klein, Freddie admitted at the training ground that he still has high hopes for his footballing career – something that we’ve recently seen with his surprise transfer to Seattle.
Before last season, Ljungberg spent nine years with Arsenal, where he scored 46 goals in 216 regular-season appearances.
Injuries have affected his production in recent years, and Ljungberg retired from international competition, which makes him a good fit with Sounders FC because he wouldn’t be leaving the team in midseason for Swedish national-team games.
Ljungberg is set to join much-travelled goalkeeper Kasey Keller, midfielder Sanna Nyassi and forward Sebastien Le Toux as the first four players on the Sounders FC roster for the inaugural season, which begins in March 2009.
Gooner Talk would like to wish Gunners legend Freddie good luck at his new club and wish him many a success in the near future.
