A case of split loyalty for Lehmann

Jens Lehmann’s loyalty at this World Cup has been strictly with the German national team. Until now.

The Arsenal goalkeeper’s ties showed Thursday when he said he hoped Arsenal captain and French striker Thierry Henry would win the Golden Ball award for the World Cup’s top player. “If you have shared a locker room with Henry for three years you would wish him luck because you would realize what a pro he is,” Lehmann said.

But Lehmann said he would also be cheering for German teammate Miroslav Klose, also shortlisted, and the tournament scoring leader with five goals. “I would definitely be happy for Miro. He played a wonderful World Cup,” Lehmann said. “It’s a case of split loyalties and I can’t say publicly who I really hope will win.”
