Wenger won´t stand in Lehmann´s way

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger praised Jens Lehmann for a "faultless performance" as Arsenal made it into the fourth round of the FA Cup, but admitted the German goalkeeper may have played his last game for the Gunners.

Lehmann has been linked with a return to Borussia Dortmund in order to bid for Germany´s number one spot at the Euro 2008 finals and following his impressive display in the 2-0 victory against Burnely on Sunday, Wenger said he would not stand in the 38-year-old´s way if he decided to leave the north London club.

Wenger said: "Jens had a faultless performance. I wish that he stays but we will learn whether or not he wants to in the days to come. He showed what a great professional he is. It is sad if he wants to go but the decision is in his court."
