The 41-year-old returns having spent last season as assistant coach at Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga.

Speaking to the Arsenal website, Ljungberg celebrated his new job and return to north London:

“I’m delighted to be returning to the club. Arsenal has always been a special place for me and I’m really excited at this opportunity to work with our Under 23 team.

I look forward to working with the talented young players we have at the club.”

Ljungberg’s appointment is likely to signal the departures of Steve Gatting and Carl Laraman from Arsenal.

Just over a month ago, the two Arsenal coaches were suspended amid claims of bullying.

Gatting and Laraman were in charge as Arsenal’s U23s won the 2017-18 Premier League 2 title.

Gatting also previously playing for Arsenal in his youth.

So far there has been no official update from the Gunners on the duo.
