Jens Lehmann sets sights on management career after Arsenal role

Jens Lehmann has said he is looking to a future in management after returning to Arsenal as a goalkeeping coach.

Lehmann, the No. 1 for the club's 2003-04 "Invincibles" team, rejoined the Gunners last week.

And the former Germany international told Bild the experience he would gain would help him in his goal of a career in management.

"The goal is to work somewhere independently," he said.

"I spoke to him [Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger]. There were then two more talks, in which I told him what I can contribute.

"I am the only new guy in the coaching staff, so I will listen a lot and keep my eyes open.

"My place will also be more up on the stands than down on the bench, I suppose. I hope to contribute positively with this."
