Jens Lehmann ‘took a CHAINSAW to neighbour’s garage’ after Arsenal legend’s long-running row over spoiled lake view


JENS LEHMANN took a CHAINSAW to his neighbour’s garage, reports claim.

The Arsenal legend has allegedly endured a long-running feud with those next door over their respective properties.

Lehmann is reportedly unhappy that a new garage blocks his view of the stunning Lake Starnberg.

An astonishing Bild report claims that the 52-year-old former goalkeeper went next door with a chainsaw and “severed the roof beams” of the garage.

The article also claims that Lehmann attempted to switch off a surveillance camera in order to go undetected.

Bild’s report goes on to allege that he was unsuccessful in preventing a live transmission being broadcast to the property’s owner.

Lehmann is claimed to have been seen in a “frenzy of rage” causing hundreds of pounds worth of damage with his chainsaw.

The police were subsequently called to Lehmann’s property, with cops now investigating whether the former Germany international is responsible for three other cases of vandalism worth more than £8,500.

Lehmann and his neighbours are alleged by Bild to have had a rocky relationship for a “long time”.

The ex-goalie is claimed to have reported them for “property damage and coercion”.

And Lehmann believes that the new garage has been built on his land.

He has owned his property on Lake Starnberg for 15 years, buying it for around £4.2million in 2007 while he played for the Gunners.

Lehmann was sacked by Hertha Berlin last year after a racist WhatsApp message appeared online.

Lehmann still keeps tabs on the club and fears they are no better off than when club legend Wenger left in 2018.

He told All To Play For podcast, by bookmaker Coral and Joe Media: “I think Mikel Arteta is a good coach but it seems to be a lot about him.

“I am not sure there is the right blend at the club.

“When I was there, David Dein worked incredibly well with Arsene Wenger on the administration side of the club. Now, it is very different.

“You don’t even know who is in charge there and who is making the decisions.

“I was there as a coach in Arsene’s final year and he was criticised and told it was time to leave.

“Things were much better in that final year than they are now.

“As a former player, I want the club to do well so it is hard to see them struggling as they are doing.”
