The German influence at Arsenal is unmistakeable.
From Mesut Ozil, Shkodran Mustafi and Per Mertesacker in the first-team squad, to Shad Forsythe’s 10 years of success with Die Mannschaft, there are plentiful links to the country.
The latest addition is Jens Lehmann, who returned to the club this summer as a first-team coach - and Ozil is delighted to see him.
“I think he’ll take us further through his experience, through his personality,” he told Arsenal Player.
“I think for the players, and especially for the goalkeepers, his experience and his personality [helps].
“He was a player who would speak on the pitch when certain things weren’t going as he wanted.
"That’s why it’s good to have somebody like that around the team who gives their opinion.”
