Freddie Ljungberg leaves Arsenal to pursue career in management.

Ljungberg, 43, was a fan favourite during his playing days at Arsenal.

Arsenal legend Freddie Ljungberg: I want "to progress my management experience".

Freddie Ljungberg has revealed that he is leaving his role as Arsenal assistant coach, the Premier League giants announced.

The ex-Gunner, who was a fan favourite during his playing days at the north London club, says he is keen to "pursue new opportunities in the coming season" and "to progress my management experience".

Arsenal's technical director and Ljungberg's former team-mate Edu said: "We're really sad to see Freddie leave as we know how much he loves Arsenal.

"However, we know he has had various opportunities over the last 12 months and stuck to the job at Arsenal. Now he has the opportunity to consider other options, and it makes sense for his career at this time.

"Freddie has made a huge contribution in his coaching role, most importantly when he led the team during that difficult period between Unai's departure and Mikel's appointment.

"We will forever be grateful for what he did then and what he's done since but fully recognise his desire to move on and be a head coach himself."
