Not that it was needed after Lehmann's comments over the season, and then the German's actions at the end of the game with Everton today, but Arsene & Jens have confirmed the stopper will leave Arsenal next week.
Lehmann was left to ride then pine at the beginning of the season after two unbelievable howlers, and comments made by the crazy German all but told us he would leave in the summer.
But today Wenger and Lehmann confirmed the worst kept secret in football.
Yes [that is the end of his Arsenal career]. That is why I brought him on. We have great respect for him,' Wenger told Sky Sports.
'He is a super professional and super talented. In the seven years I worked with Jens I could not fault him. He was focused every single day and worked very hard.'
Mad Jens thanked the fans in his farewell.'The moment at the end was an amazing feeling for me - after five years and a lot of emotional moments,'
'It was a great farewell for me and I am really grateful to the supporters and they will always stay in my heart. I really appreciated [coming on at the end]. In terms of success [during my Arsenal career], [the unbeaten season] was my highlight.'
'It was unfortunate that this season did not come to a deserved happy ending.'
I really think the way Jens conducted himself this season was a little embarrassing, but putting that aside, I'm really going to miss him.
I'm sure in 30 years time, I'll be stood in Bank of Friendship with my son and grandson regaling them with tails of a crazy German named Jens Lehmann. Cult hero.
