Lehmann ´humiliation´ at Arsenal snub

Published Add your comment

Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann has warned coach Arsene Wenger not to "humiliate" him by continuing to omit him from the Gunners line-up.

The 37-year-old has not played for the north London outfit since making a mistake against Blackburn on August 19, and vented his anger in an interview with German pay-tv station Premiere, which will be aired during Tuesday night´s Champions League programme.

"It could be that at some point I feel like commenting on the whole issue," he said. "But right at the moment I just accept everything as part of the humiliation. You have to let it happen. But I think - and this is directed towards my dear coach - that you should not humiliate players for too long. I am an Arsenal player and I will not just fade away quietly."
