Ljungberg was assistant manager at Wolfsburg before returning to Arsenal to be Under-23s boss - and says he sees Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola as an inspiration - ahead of the Blues' trip to the Emirates on Sunday.
The 42-year-old said: “Pep is a tremendous coach. Of course I've looked at how he did in his career.
"When he was with the B team with Barcelona and I thought, 'OK, I'm an assistant and with the Under-23s and the reserves here in England', so I was trying to see how he developed himself.
"The ideas he comes up with have revolutionised football. It's something as a young coach, I looked at."
