West Ham have sacked
dumped Freddie “The Pants” Ljungberg.
Or to put it nicely, West Ham announced on Wednesday that they have released midfielder Freddie Ljungberg after an agreement was reached to terminate his contract.
Ljungberg, who captained Sweden at Euro 2008, moved to West Ham last July 2007 for approx £3m.
“This is mutually acceptable,” said West Ham chief executive Scott Duxbury.
Ljungberg started 22 of West Ham’s 38 Premier League matches last season, but was kept out of the side after suffering a number of injuries.
The club website stresses that:
“The decision to part company has been taken jointly and has no bearing on Ljungberg’s fitness, which he proved during Euro 2008.”
“We respect Freddie Ljungberg’s position and are pleased we could reach agreement and wish him all the best in the future,” added Duxbury.
Ljungberg will now
work on his etchings consider his football future.
