Freddie Ljungberg has the backing of Arsene Wenger, his former manager at Arsenal, as he continues his efforts to inject fresh momentum into the club's season.

Ljungberg, 42, has been promoted from his role with the club under-23’s to take interim charge of the first team following the dismissal last week of Unai Emery.



The Swede oversaw a draw at Norwich City last Sunday and will attempt to register his first victory when Brighton visit the Emirates Stadium on Thursday.



The former midfielder is taking his first steps in management and, having enjoyed nine-trophy-laden years as a player under Wenger - a period that delivered two Premier League title and three FA Cups - Ljungberg is planning to make contact with the Frenchman who departed the north London club 18 months ago after a 22-year spell in charge.

“I really would like to speak to him,” said Ljungberg.

“We’re in contact, I have not spoken to him (since taking over) but that’s on my list.

It’s been quite hectic, but I’m very proud about this opportunity.” Wenger, for his part, also believes it is an "opportunity" his former player needs to seize with both hands, and will be on hand to offer any advice required.
