Jens Lehmann, quote master:
‘As a player I can not promise a victory, only that I will push myself and give my life.’
He added: ‘You know what I mean – my sporting life. My private life belongs to my family.’
Have I mentioned that I can’t wait to see Almunia sporting the #1 shirt next year? Lehmann seems like the kind of guy that has never really cared about club football – only playing as a way to be the top keeper for Germany (read: beating Oliver Kahn). It’s strange because it’s usually the total opposite; players usually are more loyal to the organizations that make them their living.
