Ljungberg involved in training ground fight

Fredrik Ljungberg has being involved in a punch-up with fellow Swede Olof Mellberg in a training session.

After being the victim of a late tackle from Mellberg, Ljungberg responded by grabbing his colleague and scuffling on the ground. The pair had to be separated by Daniel Andersson and Henrik Larsson.

Both players have now tried to make light of the fight, but acknowledge that the incident was regrettable:

Mellberg said:

'Of course I regret it. You can't put a positive spin on what I did.'

Sweden are placing huge responsibility on Ljungberg, after his superb season with English double winners Arsenal.
