Jens Lehmann Wants to Play Another Champions League Final with Arsenal

Arsenal is going to face Portsmouth on the Boxing Day. The league leader has recently projected an inspirational victory against Tottenhum Hotspur that kept them atop the league table. Now, ahead of the away match against Portsmouth, players are preparing for the match. You already know that Arsenal’s German goal keeper Jens Lehmann has lost his no. 1 position of the Gunners to Manuel Almunia. Now, ahead of the January transfer window, this German star is thinking about his future. He has recently said that he will decide over the matter by next week.

However, Jens Lehmann has also expressed his desire to play another Champions league final with Arsenal. This veteran goal keeper was sent off during the last year’s Champions League final against the eventual champion AC Milan. Now, it seems that Jens Lehmann is confident to bounce back with his form. However, there is also news that he has got offers from Manchester City and Germany’s VfL Wolfsburg.

"I have spoken with nobody at Manchester City, perhaps Arsene Wenger spoke with someone from Wolfsburg and my lawyer has spoken with people from other teams, but I can't say which clubs.

"I have thought about going back to Berlin.

"I have spoken with Hertha's manager Dieter Hoeness, he was a nice guy, but I have told him from the start, my goal is to play in the Champions League final. This one game."- Jens Lehmann said while talking about his future.

The 38-year-old goal keeper is still confident to appear for Germany in EURO 2008 next year. Germany coach Joachim Loew is also hopeful to get him under the goal bar in EURO 2008. Lehmann has said that he trains everyday with a view to appearing for Germany in the competition. However, Lehmann has to impress Arsène Wenger to get his place back in the Arsenal side. Now, it is almost sure that Jens Lehmann will not be in the final line up of Arsenal against Portsmouth.
