Parlour eager to reunite with Arsenal greats Seaman, Lehmann

Ray Parlour has stated that he is looking forward to meeting up with Jens Lehmann and David Seaman once again.

Arsenal will be squaring off against AC Milan in the legends game at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday and Gunners great Parlour will be one of the players featuring in the encounter.

Speaking ahead of the game, Parlour has stated that he is looking forward to the occasion and has expressed his excitement ahead of a meeting with former teammates Seaman and Lehmann who were so instrumental in North London during his career.

The ex-midfielder told arsenal.com: "Jens and David were fantastic goalkeepers.

"After David Seaman left we were thinking if we can get a goalkeeper as good as him. Jens came in, and what a fantastic man he was. He was a real winner and a real leader which we needed. He was superb in that unbeaten season - he was so important to that.

"One game that sticks out for me was Portsmouth away. We were two games away from going unbeaten for the whole season and we drew 1-1. He had an absolute blinder. Jens Lehmann was saving everything, so I think he was an important player.

"I played my whole career with David Seaman - brilliant goalkeeper and one of the best in the Premier League's history. It will be great to see those two guys."
