His last club was Shimizu S-Pulse after his contract was terminated by mutual consent. Ljungberg was captain of the Swedish national team until he announced his international retirement after UEFA Euro 2008. On 24 August 2012 Ljungberg announced his retirement from club football after a stint in the J-League after which he was contract-less for 6 months.

Ljungberg was a model for Calvin Klein underwear until 2007. He previously represented brands such as Nike, Procter & Gamble, L'Oreal and currently represents Puma, ESPN and Pepsi, as well as running his own blog since October 2009.

Ljungberg was born on 16 April 1977 in Vittsjo, Sweden to parents Roy Alve Erling Ljungberg, a civil engineer and owner of a construction and consultant business, and Elisabeth Bodil Ljungberg, a Swedish Labor Department worker. On 12 September 1984, the Ljungbergs had another son, Karl Oskar Filip. In 1982, the Ljungberg family left Vittsjö and moved to Halmstad. At first, the tenacious 5 year old would not have any part of moving. Fredrik argued with his parents that he did not want to live in Halmstad. His parents relented and took him to Halmstads BK where he played on the youth team under Olle Eriksson.

From the time he was 5–14, Ljungberg was coached by Eriksson. Eriksson’s impression of the youngster was that he was remarkably talented for his age and that he was considerate of other players noting that Ljungberg would pass the ball to his friends so that they would have a chance to score. Ljungberg credits Eriksson for having a profound effect on his career as well as Brazilian football player, Sócrates. Also in his youth, he enjoyed playing ice hockey and developed a talent for handball; he was eventually called up to the national handball team, but decided to focus his attentions on football.

Ljungberg did well in academic subjects as well as sports. When he finished 9th grade his marks averaged 4.1 on the 5 point scale. At 18, Ljungberg decided to attend university to study information technology and economics but struggled to balance the hectic academic timetable with the physically demanding commitments of professional football. Eventually, he quit university to concentrate on his football career.

On 27 June 2008 Ljungberg announced that he was ending his 10-year career for the national team. The decision came following Sweden's early exit from Euro 2008. Ljungberg played his last match for Sweden on 18 June 2008 in the 2–0 defeat to Russia in the last group stage match of Euro 2008.

Ljungberg was a model for Calvin Klein from between 2003-2007, in one of the company's most successful advertising campaigns ever. However, it didn't have all that many happy memories for Ljungberg, who recalled how women would frequently come up to him and touch him in nightclubs, apparently keen to check out the merchandise.
