Arsenal To Recoup Jens Lehmann?

I couldn’t quite get my head around it either but it does seem logical. I mean, who else do Arsenal have besides Manuel Almunia, who, to be fair, can have his good days and his utterly dismal days. Mostly dismal actually. But with Lukas Fabianski and Wojieach-impossible-to-spell-Szezcney out with long-term injuries I can see why Wenger wants to resign the Lehmannator (don’t worry it’ll catch on).

Lehmann was speaking to the German newspaper Bild about the part he hopes to play for Arsenal and said:

“Arsenal currently has a goalkeeping crisis. And I would like to help out. I was at last week’s Champions League match with Barcelona, I was even a Sky expert when goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny injured his finger.” And he continued: “I would not have thought even in my dreams that Arsenal would come and get me…”

“I’m looking forward to the role of back up and will support Almunia… We can still win the title.”

Of course then he would have to refuel his rivalry with Spaniard and error-prone Manuel Almunia who, in the past, had played second fiddle to Lehmann before he too became error-prone. Lehmann even went as far to say “I know he hates me” back in 2008 referring to Spaniard purely out of jealousy (well I’d like to think so ok?).

About Dylan O'Neill

Football mad Irish 20-year-old. Living in Dublin so I've had a keen interest in League of Ireland for the last 2-3 years and used to write about it on offtheupright.blogspot.com, focusing mainly on UCD's limited fortunes as well as the Irish national team. I started to merge this interest with gambling two years ago to moderate success so have continued to do so since! View all posts by Dylan O'Neill
