Freddie Ljungberg drops the S-bomb on Match of the Day 2 debut

Monday, 24 September 2012

*There have been calls to crack down on Premier League players swearing and television studios could be targeted after Freddie Ljungberg let some inappropriate language slip out on his first appearance on Match of the Day 2.*

The former Arsenal midfielder has been touring the television channels after recently retiring from football after spells in Japan, Scotland and the US following his departure from the Premier League.His media career could be short-lived too after he got a bit too comfortable on BBC1 last night when reminiscing about the good old days with the Gunners.‘If anyone wanted to score, you score. It was just great players,’ he said.‘I had Lauren behind me, for example. If anyone kicked me, he'd kick the s*** out of them afterwards - excuse my language.’MOTD2 host, and Metro columnist, Colin Murray failed to see the funny side.‘I hope that didn't offend anybody and we'll take it out of the iPlayer [version],’ he said.Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has not been invited back on the MOTD2 sofa since he compared a tackle by Chelsea's Michael Essien to a rape - for which he subsequently apologised profusely.Ljungberg was less regretful, appearing to make light of the situation this morning.He tweeted: ‘Oh s**t, I swore on national TV again... Oops... Sorry :-) Thanks for all watching.’
