Lehman may play on for Arsenal

2:03 pm on 19 May 2011

The veteran former German goalkeeper Jens Lehmann says he may yet play on for English premier league side Arsenal next season, even though he will turn 42 later this year.

Lehmann retired at the end of last season, but while helping out the London club while studying for his coaching licence, was persuaded to help out during an injury crisis playing one premier league game and says he prepared to extend his come-back by playing for another year.

He says he'd like a career in coaching once he hangs up his gloves for good and would like to work in the Premier League again after five years at Arsenal between 2003 and 2008.

Lehmann made the last of his 61 appearances for Germany in 2008.
