Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann admits he could retire after this summer's European Championships.
"It is very difficult (to be on the bench), very hard, particularly when I see the performances on the pitch. Sometimes you have to accept it - even after I played a couple of games and was dropped again."
The 38-year-old was close to leaving for Borussia Dortmund in January but opted to stay for both personal and professional reasons.
"I was very close (to leaving) but I stayed for several reasons. My experience from AC Milan, who I left too early, was one thing, and my family situation - I didn't want to take my kids out of school here. There was also the belief that I still can win something here and be part of it."
