Freddie with Arsenal Soccer School youngsters

Arsenal Club Ambassador Freddie Ljungberg travelled to Arsenal Soccer Schools in Oman, Dubai and Rome last week.

Freddie met participants of the Soccer Schools in all three countries, and discussed training methods with the centres’ coaches.

Ljungberg, who was a key member of the Gunners’ 2003/04 Invincibles side, also took part in a series of soccer clinics, helping to teach youngsters to ‘learn to play the Arsenal way’.

He said of the visit: “It was great to have the opportunity to visit some of the Club’s work in Oman, Dubai and Rome.

“In my 10 years as an Arsenal player, we always tried to play a certain way – to be technical, to attack and to entertain. To see that we have coaches all around the world teaching young boys and girls to play in that same Arsenal style is fantastic.

“I really enjoyed meeting so many football mad youngsters, and sharing some of my experiences as a player with them.”

Arsenal Soccer Schools have centres in 21 countries around the world. For further information visit www.playthearsenalway.com
