Freddie Ljungberg wants former Arsenal team-mate Gilberto Silva on coaching staff

Freddie Ljungberg is considering bringing on former Gunner Gilberto Silva to his Arsenal coaching staff, reports say.

Arsenal’s decision to sack Unai Emery and his backroom staff on Friday mean Ljungberg can name his own team.

Ljungberg is expected to finalise his coaching staff this weekend and the Guardian claim Silva has emerged as a shock contender.
