Jens Lehmann Doesn't Sound Happy To Have Been Released By Arsenal

Jens Lehmann Doesn't Sound Happy To Have Been Released By Arsenal

Unai Emery is trying to make Arsenal his own team after 22 years of Arsene Wenger at the helm but one of his first decisions hasn't gone down well with the man released.

When David Moyes took over at Manchester United he was taking over a team that had just won the Premier League and were always going to be sitting in Sir Alex Ferguson's shadow after well over two decades of success.

The former Everton manager was stuck in a state of keeping things the same and being his own man and nothing seemed to work for him at Old Trafford.

Unai Emery could face the same problems at Arsenal having taken over from Arsene Wenger this summer but he doesn't have the base of success last season to build on.

So the Frenchman has set about changing things and, having already signed Stephan Lichtsteiner, confirmed the signing of Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen today.

But it's not just the playing staff that are getting a reshuffle with first team coaches Neil Banfield, Tony Colbert, Jens Lehmann, Gerry Peyton and Boro Primorac all being released.

Lehmann is a former goalkeeper at club and was part of the Invincibles in 2004 and the German clearly wasn't happy with his release:

In a statement about those leaving the club Arsenal Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis said, "All these people have played a huge part in the club's success and development over many years. We thank them for all their hard work and wish them all the best for the future."

The Gunners have not won a Premier League title since 2004 and didn't win anything from 2005 to 2013 before winning a run of three FA Cups in four years.

United also had the problem of keeping the infamous 'Class of 92' around once Sir Alex Ferguson left and only Nicky Butt remains at the club.

Should Arsenal have kept Lehmann?
