Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann has said that he is planning to remain in football, as the stopper told reporters he still feels fit enough to continue playing for the London side.

"It was not really a comeback, but more of a last resort - actually more of a hobby,” Lehmann said of rejoining the Arsenal squad as they underwent an injury crisis.

"I took three weeks to get really fit - and then I had to play against Blackpool.


"I thought 'You can do it still. It is not forgotten'.

"From my performance I would be able to continue playing. My teammates are always asking me if I'll still be here next season."

While Lehmann doesn't have a contract with Arsenal, the 41-year-old has not ruled out the possibility of continuing to play, or even coach, either for the Gunners or another English side.

"I can very well imagine a job in football,” the keeper said.

“First, I'll probably end my trainer course.

"When you have such personalities as Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United and Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, this [country] is the ideal solution."
