Jens Lehmann bared all to Spanish publication Marca on a failed move to Real Madrid in 1998. Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann is currently working as a pundit and commentator in Germany - but with Marc-Andre ter Stegen heavily linked with a move to Barcelona Spanish paper Marca decided to get his opinion on the Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper. But it would not be an interview with Marca without a Real Madrid question or two popping up in there. Now Lehmann has a reputation for being, let’s say, a little bit eccentric. The German often found himself in mad situations because of his erratic mind and was your archetypal ‘mad’ goalkeeper type. Not to say it didn’t do him good - he was highly regarded at The Emirates and was often unbeatable when in top form. But perhaps the maddest decision he ever made was back in 1998 - when he turned down Real Madrid for AC Milan.
