Germany leading paper Bild have splashed the front page of their website on Wednesday with an image and headline: “Why did Klopp slap Lehmann?”

Bild seem to be making the best of a picture they scooped at the Emirates on Tuesday night, capturing a moment when Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp met former Arsenal keeper Jens Lehmann behind the scenes.

Klopp, always the enthusiast, was snapped slapping the ex-Gunner keeper around the chops in what was obviously a playful exchange. Klopp was up in the stands as a punishment for berating a fourth official in Dortmund’s last Champions League game.

Lehmann told Bild: “He greeted me. I did not know now he is banned for a second time! He slapped me, but nicely.”

The picture can be seen below.
