Jens Lehmann caught taking a pee break

[Saturday, December 12, 2009 ]

Jens Lehmann was nearly caught out after taking a toilet break during VfB Stuttgart's Champions League 3-1 victory over Unirea Urziceni on Wednesday night.

Lehmann nipped over the advertising hoardings behind his goal, crouched down and relieved himself in a quiet moment.

But the 40-year-old was forced to rush back between his posts as the Romanians launched a counter‑attack although that soon fizzled out.

Lehmann claimed afterwards that he went because he was "as nervous as ever before".

However, the former Arsenal stopper is not the first player to encounter problems when needing a toilet break during a game.

Ex-Manchester United goakeeper Fabien Barthez made a mark when he relieved himself during a UEFA Cup match for Olympique Marseille a few years back, while US forward DaMarcus Beasley furtively urinated next to the bench while waiting to come on against Mexico at the 2002 World Cup.
