Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said Freddie Ljungberg is fantastically committed to the Gunners.

Naija News reports that the Gunners had gone seven games without a win with the 2-1 defeat to Frankfurt in the Europa League proving to be ex-manager Unai Emery’s last game in charge.

Josh Kroenke had in a statement announced the sacking of the Spaniard, naming Freddie Ljungberg as the Gunners interim Head Coach.

However, Ljungberg could not inspire the Gunners to a win in his first game in charge, drawing 2-2 with newly-promoted Norwich City.

As a player, the former Sweden international made 326 appearances under Wenger and helped Arsenal win two Premier League titles and three FA Cup trophies.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Arsenal Wenger, now FIFA head of football development, said he was willingly to offer advice to Ljungberg.

“I do not want to comment too much on Arsenal. My heart is with the club and I want them to do well,” Wenger said.

“I wish Freddie well. He is fantastically committed. He has been doing his job for a long time and he has got an opportunity.

“What we want in life is an opportunity. They should get him to work with his ideas and support him.

“I am always happy to help my former players and my former club. I will always be available.”
