Arsenal great Ljungberg signs up with Indian Super League

Freddie Ljungberg has signed a short-term deal with the Indian Super League.

The 37-year old Swede has come out of retirement to join the inaugural ISL competition for three months in September this year.

Ljungberg, who retired while with Shimizu S-Pulse in 2012, says it is a good opportunity to help grow the game in Asia.

Ljungberg is best known for his near-decade spell with Arsenal where he made 328 appearances while winning two Premier League titles and three FA Cups.

He has also played with Halmstads BK, West Ham United, Seattle Sounders, Chicago Fire, Celtic and Sweden throughout his career.
