Jens Lehmann takes a break, pisses off club

Double trouble for Jens Lehmann – the Stuttgart keeper he jumped behind advertising boards, went down on one knee and wizzed while keeping a keen eye on the ensuing action on the pitch.

But that’s not what’s landed him in hot water – the former Arsenal and Germany keeper also criticised the board for bowing to pressure from fans in sacking ex-manager Markus Babbel – something the club’s director of sport Horst Heldt rejected and countered by saying that:

“The timing was wrong and the remarks were completely wrong…We will deal with the facts and there will be consequences.”

I suppose they’ll slap him around with one ban for speaking out of turn and another one for wizzing on the pitch. Best to do this at a distance though.

Here’s the video you’ve undoubtedly seen elsewhere on DT, Pies and elsewhere:

Stuttgart won the game btw, 3-1 and qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

And for fun, here’s DaMarcus Beasley pissing all over his reputation.
