Jens Lehmann

Where is Jens Lehmann now?

Brought into Arsenal as a replacement for David Seaman, Jens Lehmann was a member of “The Invicibles” team which won the title in the 2003-04 season without losing a single game.

Although Lehmann retired in 2010 at his last club VfB Stuttgart he was brought back to Arsenal as cover for their injured keepers in 2011 and played one final game that season before retiring again.

Lehmann won a number of trophies during his illustrious club career including the UEFA Cup with Schalke, Serie A with Milan, the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund and the Premier League and FA Cup with Arsenal.

Internationally he represented Germany on 61 occasions and was part of the side that were runners up to Brazil in the 2002 FIFA World Cup Final.

Since hanging up his gloves, Lehmann has been working as an ambassador for various organisations including UNICEF.

He has also completed a Sporting Director MBA at the University of Manchester.

In 2013 Lehmann returned to former club Arsenal to assist in coaching sessions for the reserves and Under 18’s as part of his UEFA Pro Licence.

A prominent figure in the German media, Lehmann provides punditry, commentary and analysis for SKY Germany and RTL. 

He has been such a success as a pundit in Germany, predominantly for his bluntness, that other television channels employ his services on an ad-hoc basis including the BBC who employed his services for their Euro 2016 coverage.

Lehmann is also involved in many social projects including the Power-Child Campus in South Africa and The Willow Foundation which was set up by former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson.

In July 2017 he represented Germany in Star Sixes, a six-a-side indoor international tournament at the O2 in London featuring some of the world’s most iconic footballers.

Lehmann made a return to Arsenal in July 2017 as a first team coach working with both the goalkeepers and the outfield players.

He left the Gunners a year later upon the appointment of new manager Unai Enery who chose to bring his own backroom staff in.

He then made a return to football in January 2019 as assistant coach at German side FC Augsburg but the whole management team were sacked just three months into their tenure.
