ARSENAL legend Jens Lehmann has been sacked by Hertha Berlin after an apparent racist message appeared online.

The former Gunners goalkeeper sent Sky Germany pundit Dennis Aogo a message during coverage of Tuesday’s clash between Man City and PSG.

Lehmann accidentally sent a WhatsApp to the former Germany international Aogo asking “Is Dennis actually your token black guy?”

A stunned Aogo posted a screenshot of the message on his Instagram story and said: “Wow, are you serious? This message was probably not meant for me.”

Lehmann swiftly apologised on Wednesday morning but was sacked from his role on Hertha Berlin’s board.

The ex-Arsenal goalkeeper tweeted: “In a private message from my cell phone to Dennis Aogo, an impression was created for which I apologised in conversation with Dennis.

“As a former national player he is very knowledgeable and has a great presence and brings odds at Sky.”
