Arsenal U23 coach Ljungberg happy with Zelalem comeback

Arsenal U23 coach Freddie Ljungberg was happy to deliver Gedion Zelalem a comeback in their win over Forest Green.

Zelalem featured in their Checkatrade Trophy victory.

Ljungberg said: "He's had some problems and I wanted to get him on the pitch today, but he could only play 45 minutes.

"That was his maximum, so hopefully nothing happens to him after the game now - and of course if you haven't played for a long time it can be hard to match the tempo, but he did really well for the circumstances that he's in and hopefully he'll kick on from there."
