The 42-year-old takes charge for the first time at Norwich City on Sunday following the dismissal of Unai Emery last week, and is hoping to "put smiles back on people's faces" during his tenure.

Arsenal lie ninth in the table with 18 points from 13 matches in what has been their worst start to a Premier League campaign so Ljungberg says he wants his players to rediscover their love of the game in order to bounce back.

"Happy footballers play the best football," Ljungberg, who twice won the Premier League title with the Gunners, told the club's official website. "That's a part I learnt as a player, there is a time to work hard but at the same time we need to enjoy what we're doing."
