Arsène Wenger believes Jens Lehmann’s actions will speak louder than his words during his second spell with the Club.

The 41-year-old goalkeeper returned to Arsenal this week on a short-term basis as cover for Manuel Almunia following injuries to three goalkeepers - Wojciech Szczesny, Lukasz Fabianski and Vito Mannone.

Much has been made of Lehmann’s off-field presence but Wenger believes his professionalism on the training pitch will also help Arsenal in their hunt for the title.

"Jens is not a talker, it is more his attitude,” said the manager. “He [has] focus and determination.”

But Wenger knows that if Lehmann does need to have his say in the dressing room, he will say it.

“If he needs to say something to somebody, he does,” added the the Frenchman.

"He can help with this and can show what is really important. It is not only my speech, it is his speech. Everyone in the staff will have a part to play in it."
