Jens Lehmann has delivered a relatively glowing account of life in England, which he gave up this week to sign for Stuttgart. The former Arsenal goalkeeper, who is now preparing to play for Germany in Euro 2008, said living in England had made him and his family more tolerant and flexible in outlook. This was despite being called "a Nazi pig" by opposition fans at away games.

Stuttgart have signed Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann on a one-year contract. The 38-year-old Germany international had fallen out of the first team at Arsenal, where he spent five years, and was given a free transfer. The probable first-choice keeper for Germany at Euro 2008, Lehmann's extensive experience is expected to help a young Stuttgart side who suffered a rocky time last season following their Bundesliga title in 2007. "The talks with those in charge at Stuttgart were very pleasant from the start," Lehmann said. "I'm looking forward to Stuttgart and the Bundesliga and want to contribute my part to the new season."

Ronaldinho can exit 'with head high'
Premier League clubs will be on alert after the Barcelona president, Joan Laporta, admitted that both Ronaldinho and Samuel Eto'o could be on their way out of the Nou Camp. Laporta insists Ronaldinho will leave and should do so "with his head held high". Laporta said: "Ronaldinho needs new challenges and it's normal that when a cycle ends the most emblematic people from that cycle leave. I'd like him to go with his head held high, because he has given us so many glorious moments. Eto'o is a player who is loyal to the club colours, who gives so much. He has also been one of the most emblematic players of this cycle."

Every year on FA Cup final day, the broadcasters like to remind us that the big match is being beamed live to 184 countries around the world, and will be watched by an audience of 1.6 billion people, from fishermen in Shanghai to beekeepers in Saskatchewan. This we take as affirmation that English football still rules the planet. Never mind the inadequacies of our national team, unable to qualify for Euro 2008; never mind the dwindling number of Englishmen playing for our leading clubs; the blue riband occasions in English football still capture the world's imagination. So we are told, and so we like to believe.

The future face of Arsenal was present at the Emirates yesterday in the making and execution of the only goal, set up by Armand Traoré and scored by Nicklas Bendtner, while the past was also honoured for it was auf Wiedersehen to Jens Lehmann. The German goalkeeper bade his farewell with a 20-minute appearance before bowing, solo, in the centre circle, to the crowd. Shyness was never the 38-year-old's forte but Arsène Wenger has never been too bothered by that and the Arsenal manager still has some fondness for the man who was a key part of the side who went unbeaten in winning the 2004 Premier League title.

The embraces between the players before the kick-off were as fulsome as ever. They showed for all to see that Arsenal, here in the last chance saloon, were ready prove that the agonies they had suffered at Anfield could be put away and the embers of this season rekindled for one week more at least.

It takes a certain kind of confidence to tell Cristiano Ronaldo to stand aside when there is a potentially crucial free-kick to be hit, but then there has been a certain kind of confidence about Manchester United all season. Enter Owen Hargreaves stage right: an unlikely match-winner in a title race that is starting to look entirely predictable.

Tottenham Hotspur are willing to listen to offers for Jermain Defoe as head coach Juande Ramos plans a clear-out of his squad. Unsurprisingly Ramos has also identified Darren Bent as surplus to requirements although it is understood that the striker, who is desperate to leave, will have to stay until the summer because no club will come close to paying the 16.5m Spurs committed last year when he arrived from Charlton Athletic. Bent will not be allowed to go on loan.
