Low questions Lehmann pursuit

Germany coach Joachim Low has questioned Schalke's reported pursuit of veteran goalkeeper Jens Lehmann.

Lehmann, 41, came out of retirement to join former club Arsenal in January on a short-term deal and made one appearance, a 3-1 victory at Blackpool.

He has subsequently been in talks with Schalke, according to speculation in Germany, with the Gelsenkirchen club seeking a back-up to Ralf Fahrmann, who was brought in following the sale of Manuel Neuer to Bayern Munich.

Low believes Champions League semi-finalists Schalke would be better looking elsewhere, though.

He said: ''I trust Jens in the fact he would be fully fit. But I am not sure it makes sense for the team.

''Jens would not be satisfied with being the No. 2. With the ambition he has, Jens would want to play. You therefore have to consider whether you want such competition and if it is healthy.''

Germany team manager Oliver Bierhoff was more upbeat on the possible move, though, stating: ''Jens still feels the fire. It will be exciting to watch.''
