Arsenal hero Lehmann may lift lid on Pizzagate

Arsenal hero Jens Lehmann is ready to lift the lid on 'Pizzagate' ... maybe.

The Stuttgart goalkeeper says he may spill the beans on what happened in the aftermath of Manchester United's infamous victory, which ended Arsenal's 49 game unbeaten streak.

Lehmann told the Daily Mail: "A year later there was 'Pizzagate'. We lost to a Rooney dive. I was in the tunnel, of course, and I saw ... I can't tell you what I saw. Ferguson was, eh...

"I'm writing a book. So I'm keeping that. It's due in May. But I don't want to hurt myself.

"I have a decision: if I never, ever want to work in football again, I can write a great book.

"But, just in case I want to stay in the game, I can soften it. The decision hasn't been made.

"Arsene Wenger doesn't need to fear anything. He already knows I'm angry because he didn't pick me in my last year - but only on a professional basis."
