Jens Lehmann with explanations - not the first slip of the ex-keeper

As the 51-year-old told


, he had "already phoned Dennis and asked his forgiveness if my statement came across as disrespectful," said the ex-goalkeeper. “It wasn't meant that way at all, but positive. Because he is competent as a Sky expert and very strong in his demeanor. And that's why the quota has increased. That's what I wanted to say, but I was unhappy about it. Since the WhatsApp went out from my cell phone, I take responsibility for it. It was a private message, ”was Lehmann's half-baked reply.
