Former Sweden International Freddie Ljungberg has completed his transfer to Japan where he will join up with J-League side Shimizu S-Pulse.
After leaving SPL side Celtic at the end of the season, Freddie was eager to find a new challenge and is now fully looking forward to his time in the Far East. Commenting on the signing S-Pulse manager Afshin Ghotbi added: “Freddie brings a winning spirit, He’s a two-time champion of the Premier League, a finalist of the Champions League and former captain of his country, and he was part of one of the best teams in the history of the game. My feeling is that bringing in that kind of player who still has the passion to play the game and still wants to improve is only going to make the J.League and S-Pulse better”.
