Lehmann unsure how 'invincibles' Arsenal takeover would work


Former Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann says he's unsure how a takeover of the club involving his old teammates would work.

Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira are reportedly assisting Spotify owner Daniel Ek in preparing a bid to buy the north London club from current owner Stan Kroenke.

"It would be fantastic to have my former team-mates working for Arsenal again because they're all great guys," the former Germany 'keeper told Sky Sports News.

"But I don't know if the Kroenke family actually wants to sell Arsenal. From my encounters with Josh Kroenke, he's a very nice guy and he was very interested to lead Arsenal to a brighter future.

"My experience of football, now I'm on the board at Hertha Berlin, is people first need to know the right questions and then implement a structure where all the guys - Thierry, Dennis and Patrick - can work.

"Would you see them working on the pitch all together? I don't really understand their jobs because there needs to be a good structure from the top to the bottom.

"There's Edu, a former team-mate, I think he's doing a good job there. So if on top comes Thierry as a coach or manager probably, Patrick the same. Dennis was an assistant coach at Ajax.

"I think their expertise is probably not becoming a sporting director or CEO."
