"It was the winter holiday and I was back in Togo having a kickabout with friends when my phone rang.One of the boys answered it and said, 'Manu, it's Arsene for you'. 'Arsene who?' I said. 'Arsene Wenger', he said. 'Get out of it', I said, and grabbed the phone off him. But then I heard the voice. 'Allo'. F*****g hell. It is Arsene Wenger!"

Lehmann & Pires Contract Updates

Jens Lehmann has agreed to a new 1-year contract at Arsenal but is yet to sign it.
Arsene Wenger revealed that Arsenal's offer had been accepted: “We will extend his contract for one year,” said Wenger . “It has not been signed but it has been agreed.”

Lehmann has been Arsenal's form player this season, and eventhough he has has a few temper problems, he has managed to keep ahead of Almunia in the Arsenal goal.

Robert Pires conformed that Arsenal have offered him a 1-year deal, but also said that he has not dedided yet wheather to sign it or not.

Pires wanted a longer deal, but Arsenal's policy of only offering one year contracts to players above the age of 30 has left him with a conundrum. A few clubs are also chasing Pures, so he will probably take his time in before signing for any club.
