Former Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann has sent a message of support to the club’s current keeper Bernd Leno after his fellow German was stretchered off during the club’s game with Brighton yesterday.
The Arsenal goalkeeper was injured after an aerial challenge with Neal Maupay, a challenge that had the stopper incensed with the French striker.
To make matters worse, the Brighton striker went on to score a last-minute winner past Leno’s replacement Emi Martinez.
The injury to Leno immediately looked bad and Mikel Arteta painted a grim picture of the problem after the game. It is reported to be a knee injury that could see Leno, one of Arsenal’s better players in recent times, sidelined for an extensive period.
One man who has been quick to come to his support is Arsenal’s former cult hero Lehmann.

Taking to Twitter, the 50-year-old, who has 61 caps for the German national team and had two spells at Arsenal, made it clear he was sorry to see the Arsenal stopper in such a bad way.
Undoubtedly, Lehmann’s opinion is likely shared by the majority of Arsenal fans as Leno has been one of the club’s better players in a tough season.
