Arsenal have confirmed Mikel Arteta’s coaching staff, with Freddie Ljungberg confirmed as one of three assistants.
The 37-year-old Spaniard joined the Gunners as their new head coach last Friday, returning to the club where he ended his playing career in 2016.
He takes over with the Gunners having won only one of their last 13 games and sitting in the bottom-half of the Premier League.

While he was announced as the new boss before the weekend trip to Everton, interim head coach Ljungberg took the team at Goodison Park as the two sides played out a goaless draw.
Ljungberg, who took interim charge of the team for six matches, remains as an assistant coach.
Steve Round will also join the Gunners as assistant coach, while Inaki Cana Pavon has linked up from Brentford to work with Sal Bibbo as goalkeeping coach.
