Former Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker has returned to the first team ahead of the Premier League trip to Carrow Road to face league newcomers Norwich City.

Per Mertesacker has been the Academy Manager at Arsenal since his retirement from football in 2018.

He has been drafted into the Arsenal first team to assist Freddie Ljungberg ahead of the trip to face the Canaries in the league as per the statement from the club earlier this weekend.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup winner will be in the dugout alongside former Arsenal winger Freddie Ljungberg for the Norwich City game.

Freddie Ljungberg has been saddled with the responsibility of getting the Gunners back on track after the recent wobble under Spanish manager Unai Emery who paid the price for a poor run of form with his job.

The Swedish football legend was one of the assistant managers to Unai Emery having been drafted into that position by the club bosses at the start of the season.

Freddie Ljungberg is the only coach to survive the chop as Unai Emery and other members of his backroom staff left with him.

Arsenal are on a poor run of seven games without a victory ahead of the Norwich City game.
