Manuel Almunia has accepted Arsene Wenger's choice to recall Jens Lehmann.Arsenal keeper Manuel Almunia has accepted Arsene Wenger's decision to recall experienced German shot-stopper Jens Lehmann.
Almunia was axed after conceding four goals in their loss to Manchester United, with Lehmann reclaiming his place for last weekend's trip to Aston Villa.
When Lehmann was dropped the former Borussia Dortmund ace vented his frustration and made it publicly known that he was unhappy with the decision.
However, Almunia has been more gracious and accepts Wenger's decisions, regardless of whether they contravene his first-team ambitions.
"I am happy to accept every decision the manager makes - without fuss," said Almunia.
