Former Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann has confirmed that he will return to the club to take up a coaching role.

Lehmann has been in talks about becoming one of the first-team coaches working directly under manager Arsene Wenger, and confirmed his pending appointment to German newspaper Die Welt.

“Yes, it’s true,” the former Germany international said.

The German is heading back to Emirates Stadium, where he won the Premier League title in 2004, to become a part of Arsene Wenger’s backroom set-up.

The German had two previous spells with the Gunners during his playing career and was part of the ‘Invincibles’ team that won the Premier League title in 2003-04.

Lehmann, who has also played for Schalke, AC Milan, Dortmund and Stuttgart, retired in 2010 before briefly returning to Arsenal a year later to help with the club’s injury crisis.

Arsenal returned to pre-season training on Tuesday, with their first friendly fixture coming against Sydney FC on July 13.
