Just when you thought it was safe to assume the Premier League would be free from a certain mad German goalkeeper, the Daily Telegraph have reported that Jens Lehman is staying put at Arsenal – for the time being at least. It appeared the German number one was bound for Borussia Dortmund but ‘personal reasons’ have got in the way.
Despite his lack of action in the Premiership, Lehmann said in a statement: “Although it would have been a very attractive challenge to play again in the Bundesliga for Borussia Dortmund, I have decided against this step for private reasons.”
What could these ‘personal reasons’ be? A massive drop in salary perhaps? Or is Jens eyeing an FA Cup winner’s medal for the Gunners after they progressed against Burnley and were effectively handed a bye in the next round against Newcastle or Stoke.
