Jens Lehmann is fast becoming the Premier League equivalent of the kid who gets fouled whilst playing football on the street and then picks up his ball and walks off, whist all his friends stick two fingers up at him! The quotes today are priceless, the latest in a stream of bitterness from the keeper.
“I stayed at Arsenal to win the Champions League, I thought I would have the chance to play, but the fact not to have had my chance irritates me a lot. For me, the elimination has been a tragedy, most of all because I have not had the opportunity to prevent it. I told (Wenger) he needed experienced players in his team for such important games. He did not share my view and I do not think he has been successful, the results speak against his choices.” (Kicker)
So Jens is continuing to speak his mind and is simultaneously becoming an object of ridicule. It’s a shame because he has served Arsenal well but now the beleaguered German sits on the bench scowling arms folded whilst everyone steers clear of him! The sooner he leaves the better for everyone.
