Freddie Ljungberg has expressed his pride after the former midfielder was handed an ambassadorial role at Arsenal.

The former Sweden international, whose new job is to help promote the club’s international growth, spent 10 years at the club and helped the Gunners win two Premier League titles and three FA Cups.

“I’m honoured to take on this ambassadorial role,” said Ljungberg.

“The club has a special place in my heart as everyone knows and I’m looking forward to helping the club grow.”

Ljungberg starts with a trip to Asia next week to promote Arsenal’s pre-season tour, before taking part in a series of fan and media events to promote the club’s Asia 2013 summer tour in Indonesia, Vietnam and Japan.

“We are delighted that Freddie has agreed, in this ambassadorial role, to help us reach more of our passionate supporters around the globe,” said Arsenal’s head of marketing Charles Allen.

“He is much loved by our fans and it’s great to have him back.”
