For those that don’t know, my all-time favourite footballer is Freddie Ljungberg.
Yes, I harp on about Johan Djourou a lot, I’ve praised Alex Song to high heavens and I will always love Dennis Bergkamp for showing me the light and leading me to Arsenal, but the truth is that none of those three can compete with my undying love for Freddie.
Recently I had a piece published about Freddie in the excellent The Equaliser blog. If you’re interested in finding out just why Freddie is so important to me then I encourage you to check out the article.
Here’s a snippet from the piece to get you in the mood:
“My first memories of Ljungberg as a player are particularly vivid. Mostly used as a substitute in his first couple of seasons at Arsenal, “Freddie” — all spiky brown hair and Swedish swagger — would zip around the pitch like a madman, troubling defenders with his pace, intelligence and infectious enthusiasm.”
