Decision time for Lehmann
09 Apr 2007 - 09:15:19
Arsenal's veteran goalkeeper Jens Lehmann says his future with the Gunners will be decided in the next couple of weeks.
The 37-year-old Germany international is out of contract this summer and Arsenal have stuck to their policy of only offering one-year extensions to their more senior stars.
Lehmann is aware that he could secure a two-year deal elsewhere, but says that he has yet to decide on his best option.
He commented: "We will talk soon, in the next week or two. I am not frustrated, it is business.
"I have always said I would like to play at Arsenal because I am certainly aware the team has potential. I can decide to be a part of it next season, it is my decision.
"I am on a one-year contract right now, why should I really be disappointed about another year?
"It is not about one year. If I should go somewhere else, then I would go for two years, but here it is only one year.
"It is always my decision. I can stay, of course I can stay, but I have to talk before. It is a tough decision I have to make."
Lehmann joined the Gunners in the summer of 2003 from Borussia Dortmund, having played for AC Milan and Schalke earlier on in his career.
