Special bond suits Freddie

08 Feb 2007 - 16:33:29

Arsenal forward Freddie Ljungberg has dismissed suggestions that he could be on his way out of the club at the end of the season.

The 29-year-old Sweden international has been with the Gunners since the summer of 1998 and admits that he now has a special bond with the north London club.

He said: "I have been at Arsenal for eight of Arsene Wenger's ten years and am now the longest-serving player.

"When I was young there were a lot of clubs who wanted to sign me and everybody back home said I should go to Spain or Italy, because the style of play was more technical.

"But I met with Arsene and we had the same philosophy of how the game should be played with the ball on the ground and a quick passing game.

"I went against what people said and it has been a great journey. I enjoy playing football the way it should be played.

"There were rumours that I was going to leave for Real Madrid or AC Milan in the past, but I always said that the most important thing was to win things and be successful.

"I live to win things and we are doing that at Arsenal, so I see no point in me leaving. There is a special bond at Arsenal and that's why I have stayed so long."
