New Delhi: The much-anticipated Indian Super League has got a further shot in the arm, this time from a Gunner, as Arsenal legend Freddie Ljungberg signed a deal with the franchise-based event with an aim to give Indian football a taste of the English Premier League.
"Even though I am retired, when this opportunity came up I was really excited to be involved. Indian football is such a growing market and this is a great opportunity for me to take my knowledge of the English Premier League over to India to help launch the league," Ljungberg, who will be one of the marquee players in the league, said.

The former Swedish international, who has 75 caps for his country, is best known for his nine-year career at Arsenal where he scored 72 goals, won two Premier League titles and three FA Cups.
