Photo of Lehmann at beer festival gets him dropped
Stuttgart's head coach Markus Babbel was very annoyed with Jens Lehmann after his team’s 2-0 defeat by Cologne over the weekend.
He decided to come out of his area, rush way out to tackle an opponent and of course was left with egg on his face when the ball ended in the back of an unguarded net!
Reminds you of his mad rushes when he used to play for Arsenal doesn’t it?
And when Babbel found out that after the game Lehmann went to the Oktoberfest beer festival without permission he had enough.
The player has now been dropped for the cup game against fourth division side VfB Luebeck.
Lehmann said it had been a charity visit.
“The visit to the festival was part of a charity event which was planned a long time ago. It was not agreed with the club. Naturally, I accept measures taken by the sporting management” Lehmann said.
Jens had attended the festival with his wife Connie.
