Freddie Ljungberg, Former Arsenal Star, Regrets Calvin Klein Boxer Adverts

Arsenal's former midfielder Freddie Ljungberg has admitted his regret at modelling men's underwear for Calvin Klein.

The Swede was a model for the fashion designer from between 2003-2007, in one of the company's most successful advertising campaigns worldwide.

But the 35-year-old doesn't look back upon the four-year experience as a happy one.

"I'd go to a night club and girls would come up and grab my willy. Just like that," the Swede recalled.

"There were hands everywhere. From behind, from the sides, pulling and tugging. I couldn't do anything about it."

Ljungberg signed for Arsenal as a 21-year-old in September 1998, and scored 75 goals for the club from 328 appearances, winning two Premier League titles and three FA Cups before leaving for West Ham in 2007.
