Arsene Wenger Rule Out Freddie Ljungberg Move

Freddie Ljungberg

A return to Arsenal is out of the question for Seattle Sounders midfielder Freddie Ljungberg.

The former Sweden international was at Emirates Stadium on Saturday to watch his old club defeat Stoke City 2-0 and after stating that there was a chance of going to a European club on a loan deal in between MLS seasons, Arsenal was immediately named as a potential place he could land.

However Gunners boss Arsene Wenger said Ljungberg was not in town to discuss that option and expected him to return to the Sounders.

He told reporters that he saw Ljungberg and had a chat while he was with the team in the dressing room.

Wenger then said that Ljungberg did not ask him about training with Arsenal and therefore that will not happen.

The manager then said that Ljungberg is doing very well in the US but that does not surprise him as Ljungberg is a very good player.
