Arsenal cult-hero, Mad Jens Lehmann looks set to make an astonishing comeback to football shortly after retiring in a bid to help his former team mates out as we hit crisis point with both our first and second choice keepers getting injured at the same time.
News broke yesterday that Arsene Wenger sought to bring back the crazy German in a move not too dissimilar to the one that saw Sol Campbell don the red and white once again last season (to great effect too), so that we'd have some goal keeping cover over the age of 12.
Lehmann was all too happy to oblige.
'I know this Arsenal team and I am sure we can go on and win the title. If I can play a part in that, so much the better,' said the massive lunatic.
'It never crossed my mind that I might end up saving it. But when they asked me, I was more than happy to oblige. It was just over the last few days that they contacted me to see if I could help out for the rest of the season and I agreed straight away.'
Lehmann also played down past arguments with the man he is now looking to cover.
'That was then, but this is different.'
'I am ready for the challenge, but I know my main job will be helping out and providing cover. I have a lot of experience and I am happy to pass it on to Almunia or whoever else is in goal.'
So if Almunia is looking for advice on how to batter Drogba, gouge Nicklas Anelka's eyes out, kick Kevin Davies in the tits, have a slash at the side of the pitch, throw Wayne Rooney's boot over the goal posts or comically waste some time ..... we've got the ideal man for the job.
Welcome back Mad Jens!
