Former Arsenal Goalie To Face Charges Over Assault

Former Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann is set to appear in court over assault charges.

The former German keeper is being accused of assault and attempted assault for an incident that allegedly two years ago.

The incident was recalled to be a road-rage incident that got out of control which led to Lehmann allegedly engaging in a verbal battle with the other driver and eventually grabbing the man by the scarf.

The German ex-international has appealed against a €240,000 (£202,000) fine for his alleged involvement in the altercation. When asked about the incident, he said: ‘I have never threatened or choked someone.’

The case will heard at the district court in Starnberg, Bavaria, Germany.

Jens Lehmann who was part of the Arsenal Legends team that beat AC Milan Glorie 4-2 at the Emirates Stadium in a Charity match last weekend, was fan favourite during his hay days with the Gunners, putting out impressive performances between the sticks even at the international football level.
