Jens Lehmann

Nationality: Germany

Age: 41

Height: 1.90m

“Mad Jens” has come back to Arsenal after leaving in 2008.  Jens lost his spot between the posts to Manuel Almunia.  The two had their differences and Lehmann went to Stuttgart where he played out his career until retiring.  He is known as “Mad Jens” for the mischief he’s caused on the field.  Youtube is full of clips of Jens doing crazy things like picking fights with Didier Drogba or taking a shoe and throwing it on top of his net, and even taking a bathroom break behind the goal during a game.  Lehmann came back to Arsenal in the January transfer window and made two appearances for the reserves as well as one game for the first team after Almunia was injured before the game.  He is known for his antics as well as his shot stopping and command.  When playing you can see him screaming orders from the back!
