Having actually been designated Toolbox’s head instructor last Friday, Freddie Ljungberg confesses he would certainly love to get on the blower with Arsene Wenger.
Fortunately, the Frenchman, obtaining to grips with a brand-new job of his very own, is very much up for a chin wag with his former winger.
No question the Swede is desperate to pick his old employer’ minds, specifically as he’s managing a team that appear to have forgotten just how to assault and also safeguard.
Asked whether contact had actually been made with Wenger, the Swede said they ‘d not yet talked, although it seems as though messages have actually been traded.
“I would really such as to talk to him,” Ljungberg told his pre-Brighton interview.
“I’m in contact with him but I haven’t talked to him due to the fact that it’s been a little bit stressful, but it gets on my listing to do so.”
A couple of hundred miles away, a comparable inquiry was presented to Wenger.
“I’m constantly satisfied to help my previous gamers as well as my former club,” FIFA’s Principal of Global Growth informed Sky Sports Information.
“If he has that need then certainly I will certainly be offered.
“My heart is with the club as well as I want them to do well. Freddie is exceptionally dedicated.
“He desired this work for a lengthy time. He has an opportunity. Allow’s obtain him to collaborate with his concepts and also sustain him.”
Ljungberg was additionally asked why there was a lack of Swedish coaches in the Premier League; a slightly odd inquiry offered there are hardly any type of English coaches in England, however there we go.
Remarkably, Freddie really did not have a solution as to why his compatriots, Sven Goran Eriksson aside, had not succeeded on these shores.
“I do not know why that is, I assume there are a lot of great Swedish instructors,” he claimed.
“Obviously, it’s an honour and also it really feels special. I lived here for a very long time now and also I have actually simply been attempting to function as tough as I can to get an opportunity and they gave me a chance.
“At the exact same time, I do not think it matters where you’re from, I just try to do a job.”
While Freddie never ever actually played under Eriksson, the employer (I assume we’ll begin calling him this currently) exposed he utilized to catch up with the previous England manager when he was still playing at Collection.
He stated: “Sven is intelligent, I spoke with him a great deal when he was the manager of England because he was enjoying our games.
“I understand in the past, some tales of exactly how he dealt with gamers and also just how he made them really feel great and also points like that.
“I have actually swiped a bit of those suggestions. He’s a great coach, it’s been a very long time, and I wish I can talk to him quickly.”
