Arsenal Legend Jens Lehmann Has Some Big Plan Michael McGovern

Arsenal Legend Jens Lehmann Has Some Big Plan Michael McGovern

Former Arsenal and Germany goalkeeper Jens Lehmann was seriously impressed with Northern Ireland goalkeeper Michael McGovern on Tuesday night, so much so that he seems to be acting as an unofficial agent for him.

McGovern was between the sticks for his country’s Euro 2016 tie against Germany, and despite losing 1-0 to a Mario Gomez strike, the 31-year-old was in outstanding form as he denied an array of efforts from the German’s superstars.

Lehmann was watching the encounter from the press box as a pundit for BBC and he became instant admirer of McGovern.

Live on BBC One alongside presenter Gary Lineker and fellow pundit Neil Lennon, the man capped 61 times by Germany said of McGovern: “He’s fantastic; he kept them in the game several times.

“I’ve heard he’s a free agent now…can he speak German? I might ask a couple of clubs to take him after today’s performance!”

McGovern is out of contract at Scottish Premiership side Hamilton Accies, after an impressive two years at the club.

He has been linked with a move to Rangers this summer, but his solid displays for his country could well see him end up with an even bigger move – particularly if Lehmann is acting on his behalf!

What do you make of Lehmann’s comments? And how did you rate McGovern’s performance?
