New warning from Lehmann
12 Nov 2007 - 13:53:08
Veteran Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann has again warned that he could seek a January transfer if he continues to be left out of the Gunners' starting eleven.
The 38-year-old is desperate to safeguard his position as Germany's number one for next year's European Championships and is frustrated at being behind Manuel Almunia in the Gunners' pecking order.
Lehmann told Kicker magazine: "Given what the Germany coach says, I will have to see how things are in December.
"I definitely want to play at Euro 2008. Playing there has always been my aim.
"The Bundesliga is always attractive and is an option and maybe the German second division is too.
"The situation is as it is. It is only important what the manager decides and I am using this phase to train intensively every day.
"The manager knows I am highly motivated. I would like to play again soon and expect that I will do. I would be very surprised if that was not the case."
Lehmann joined Arsenal in the summer of 2003 from Borussia Dortmund and has gone on to make nearly 200 appearances for the north London club.
