Karl Fredrik “Freddie” Ljungberg (Swedish pronunciation: ) (born 16 April 1977 in Vittsjö, Sweden) is a retired Swedish footballer. in 1982, the Ljungberg family left Vittsjö and moved to Halmstad. His parents relented and took him to Halmstads BK where he played on the youth team under Olle Eriksson. From the time he was 5-14, Ljungberg was coached by Eriksson. Also in his youth, he enjoyed playing ice hockey and developed a talent for handball; he was eventually called up to the national handball team, but decided to focus his attentions on football. Ljungberg had scored many important and vital goals for Arsenal throughout the season. Arsenal went on to win this game 3-1. He was instrumental in Arsenals 2-1 win against Liverpool at Anfield where he won a penalty in which Thierry Henry scored and then he slotted in a sweet finish from a Robert Pires cross.

His perseverance paid off because three years later he was moved up to the senior team. Some of Ljungberg’s best form came in the second half of the 2001-02 season, when Arsenal won their second Premier League and FA Cup double.
