Arsenal boss Wenger unhappy with Lehmann comments

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was unhappy with Jens Lehmann's comments before last night's 7-0 victory over Slavia Prague.

Wenger named Lehmann on the bench, which marked the German's return following a lay-off which he has found "humiliating".

The Arsenal manager nonetheless maintained: "There is no purpose to humiliate anybody. I have said many times that I respect him a lot.

"That is how he experiences things, but that is not my purpose at all.

"We have had chats about that already.

"What is important tonight is to praise the players who have done well - and 60,000 people go home happy, having watched good football."

"There is fierce competition for places in every position at every big club; once the team comes out, that competition has to stop.

"Certainly there is a good possibility the team will be changed for Sunday."
