Product Shill: Jens Lehmann For… His Own Book

Are sportsmen single-handedly solving the world’s literacy problems? With the amount of books on store shelves penned by footballers, one would think so.

Der Wahnsinn liegt auf dem Platz’ is Jens Lehmann’s attempt at an autobiography, and we have absolutely no idea what the title means or if the pages in between the front and back covers contain words, hieroglyphics or paint by number puzzles.

We snark, but we do love Lehmann’s form of crazy, even if we suspect his book, much like many ‘ballers avec penmenship are just a big ploy to get close to the leading lady of reading, Queen Rania of Jordan.

Good product shill hand positioning, though.

    Interesting title, a unique person with a well deserved autobiography.

    The meaning, however, would be along the lines of “the source of madness is the pitch”.

    Or, if it’s a play of words on ‘auf der Hand liegen’, which means ‘being absolutely clear’, it would mean soemthing along the lines of “madness in football is self-evident”.
