Angry Lehmann hits out at Almunia again





The 38-year-old goalkeeper spoke of his anger at being consigned to the bench and attacked both manager Arsene Wenger and the man who is keeping him out of the side, Manuel Almunia, in an interview with Germany's Kicker magazine.

'I stayed here to win the Champions League and I saw good chances to play, but I have not had these (chances) and that makes me very angry,' he said.

'For me personally, it is a tragedy, particularly since I did not have a chance to prevent it,' he said.I have had such thoughts (about being able to prevent defeats) ever since the coach took me out of the team following the 0-0 against Milan.'
'To be sitting on the bench behind somebody who only started to play when he was 30 is not funny,' he added.

'I am very angry.'

Furthermore, Lehmann feels he has been treated badly by Wenger, claiming he has not been given a fair chance.
