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

He 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 busy working on a number of projects including ambassadorial work for various organisations as well as completing a Sporting Director MBA at the University of Manchester.

He also worked extensively in the German media and has provided punditry, commentary and analysis for SKY Germany and RTL as well as in the UK for the BBC.

A UEFA Pro Licence holder, Lehmann made a return to Arsenal in July 2017 as a first team coach working with both the goalkeepers and the outfield players but left a year later upon the appointment of new manager Unai Enery who chose to bring his own backroom staff in.

He returned 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.

In May 2020 he joined the supervisory board at Hertha Berlin in his current role as sporting consultant.
