Jens Lehmann might be 38 years of age but he fosters the dream of an 18-year old. Goal.com reports that the German international goalkeeper, who is now no more in favour with Arsenal, is dreaming to play in a Bayern Munich shirt next season.
Lehmann already knows that his season is over and all he can do for the rest of the season is hope (against hope?) that he gets to play a few games for the Gunners to get some vital match practice before the Euro 2008 finals beckon. He turned don a move to his old club Borussia Dortmund for the next 6 months only last week for familial reasons but is now eyeing a place in the Bayern squad next season.
Lehmann told the Bild newspaper:
I have been a professional too long to exclude anything. Bayern have shown with the appointment of Jürgen Klinsmann that they are open to new ideas and on a good course.
Now Klinsmann and Lehmann share a very special and cordial relationship with each other and maybe Lehmann is banking on the former German national coach’s recommendations to creep to the Bavaria. Yet even there he would have to play second fiddle, this time to his compatriot Michael Rensing.
