Norwich midfielder Gilmour hails Ljungberg man-management

Norwich City midfielder Charlie Gilmour is full of praise for Arsenal assistant coach Freddie Ljungberg.

Gilmour worked with the Swede with Arsenal's U23s before leaving for the Canaries last summer.

He told edp24.co.uk: “My last year at Arsenal my manager was Freddie Ljungberg, and I still keep in contact with him now.

“He was the person to deal with in terms of man-management. I could always talk to him and he is just so detailed in everything that he does.

“You just love talking to him because he is so into football, like you. He is definitely up there.

“I like people that speak to you and want you to improve as a player and are very detailed in their work. I find that to be more beneficial for me, and I think that those sort of coaches get the best out of me."
