Lukas Podolski, the former forward for Arsenal, has been active as one of the opinion leaders in European football.


He tweets from time to time and his opinions are often influential on his fans. Recently, he tweeted that Leicester City is his favorite as to who will win the Premier League title. With this championship in the final rounds, there are many rumors doing the rounds. And when it comes to understanding the potential of the teams, who better to bank upon than a former champion of the game, Lukas Podolski.

Lukas is an international player from Germany who is currently with Turkish giants, the Galatasaray team. He is sure that Tottenham Hotspur will not be able to take away the title this year. He served the Arsenal team till last year and was recruited into the team in 2012. Today, at thirty years of age, Leicester is his current favorite for the upcoming championship finals. This is especially evident when the Swansea City was defeated by Leicester with a score of 4-0. The game took place at King Power Stadium on Sunday. Arsenal on the other hand, has not been in the Premier League for a long time. They last won the title in 2004. After that, even this season, they were unable to finish among the top four positions.

Jurgen Klopp comments on Liverpool need

Apr
21

Jurgen Klopp says that Liverpool need to have more self-belief if they are to start winning matches against the top teams.

The manager was speaking after the club’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham at Anfield. Even though the result does not hugely improve Liverpool’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League, it is a welcome result against a team that is challenging for the title. It once again puts Liverpool in the headlines, as they have affected the title race in a significant manner. Philippe Coutinho came up with the opening goal seven minutes after half-time break.
Opposition striker Harry Kane, who has been one of the best forwards in the division, came up with the equaliser a few minutes later. Rather worryingly, Liverpool took off striker Daniel Sturridge when he clearly represented one of the best chances of the home team coming up with a winner. Klopp later revealed that the decision was purely tactical and not based on any injuries. Speculation mounted during the match that Sturridge had suffered a recurrence of the numerous problems he has been facing in the last two years.Both teams failed to find a winner in the second half and this was largely down to the absence of self-belief according to the German manager.

Lukas Podolski has come under a lot of criticism

Jan

Germany striker Lukas Podolski has come under a lot of criticism for his decision to choose German doctors over those in Turkey.

The striker is currently playing with Galatasaray after having moved to the Turkish club for around £ 1.8 million. He signed a three-year contract with the giants in 2015. The transfer will provide Arsenal with a fee of £ 2.1 million for every year of this contract that he spends in Istanbul. First impressions have been promising for Galatasaray, as he has been able to score eight goals in 16 appearances so far.

The 30-year-old has been able to bring in a decent tally of goals, although it has not exactly translated into league domination for Galatasaray. They are one of the biggest teams in this part of the world, but Galatasaray have consistently been overshadowed by the likes of Fenerbahce in recent years. Now, the threat from Besiktas has grown and Galatasaray wanted to put an end to this by signing a top player like Podolski. After recently suffering an injury, the striker made the decision to return to Germany to seek help from doctors. The club, though, have criticised his decision by saying that he should have stayed with the club’s medical staff.

“What annoys me here is that in some Turkish media also much nonsense is spread about my injury. Some Turkish newspapers lie. Do not listen to speculative rumours about my injury. My treatment is going well in Germany. The doctors and physios here I’ve always worked and they have my confidence. For me these are the best conditions in order to be as fast as possible fit again and come back. This is at the end the most important thing for me,” said Podolski, whose last appearance in the Galatasaray shirt came back towards the end of 2015.

Podolski had too much competition in Arsenal and had to be offloaded

Oct

Joel Campbell, Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott, MesutOzil and Danny Welbeck are the main attacking figures of Arsenal and it was just too much competition for Lukas Podolski who was already going through some difficult times at the Emirates Stadium as his career was experiencing a steady decline and the only option that was left was for him to make a move away from Arsenal.

Podolski’s first season as a player of Arsenal saw him making 33 appearances for the Premier League club and he managed to score 11 goals in his debut season but things began to fall apart for the German attacker as he began to lose his place in the starting XI of Arsene Wenger and it reached a point where Podolski was lucky if he got some playing time on the pitch.

It was only a matter of time until Podolski was offloaded from Arsenal and it occurred on July 4th of the ongoing year as the German player joined Galatasaray for a transfer fee of €1.8 million as he signed a 3 year long deal.

Arsene Wenger believes that this switch of clubs is the best thing that he could have done as this will benefit his career which was fading away. The French manager of Arsenal revealed a few details concerning Podolski as he told the media: “I felt that the opportunities for him to play with the stature a player has, he needed to go somewhere and play.

Lukas Podolski is not satisfied with his role in Arsenal

Arsenal’s Lukas Podolski made 7 appearances in this season which reached it’s end a few weeks ago and in all of the matches where he played in, the German forward made a total of 0 goals.

One of the reasons of why Podolski’s numbers with Arsenal was so low in this season is because he was loaned out to Inter Milan.

Podolski was loaned out to the Italian side Inter Milan in a transfer that had hopes of reviving the career of Podolski who had and still continues to struggle to score goals on a consistent basis not only for Arsenal but for any club that he joins.

The German forward is 30 year old and his future is uncertain as the player is not a regular starter in Arsenal and Podolski is eager to turn into a performer who could make an impact with his team and have a starting role but in order to do this, he might have to make a move away from the Emirates Stadium.

Bayern Munich reached the semifinals of the DFB-Pokal

Apr

Bayern Munich reached the semifinals of the DFB-Pokal after beating Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday night.

It was a very narrow victory and it was achieved only on penalties. After the match, Bayern superstar Thomas Müller said that there was no danger of fatigue for his team. He did admit that Bayern were lucky to go through this tie. The club, who remain on course to winning yet another league and cup double, have managed to lift this title in the last two seasons. A major challenge was seen in the form of Leverkusen, who have shown signs of brilliance this season.

For long periods of the night, it looked like Leverkusen would make use of the home advantage and get an unlikely victory. The path towards the stage of the competition has so far been relatively easy for Bayern, but they were given a major scare by Leverkusen. It has often been mentioned that luck plays a major role when it comes to victories over penalties, but Müller stated that penalties also requires a lot of practice. Bayern remain in hunt for yet another trophy in the form of the Champions League. The German club will be up against Porto in the quarter finals of the competition. (more…)

Lukas Podolski looking to get back to Inter Milan

Mar

Lukas Podolski was looking to start his new chapter at Inter Milan in the best possible way. However, the former Arsenal forward, who is on loan at the club, has struggled for form in the few matches that he has played.

This has led to manager Roberto Mancini publicly criticising him and requesting him to provide more to the team in order to be selected on a regular basis. Podolski has played a little football in the last few years. He was a major £ 10 million signing for Arsenal. Even though his early spell at Arsenal was rich with goals, he has played less than 60 matches in the last two seasons.

The 29-year-old has now failed to score in eight league appearances for the Italian outfit and it will be very difficult for Podolski to hold his first-team spot with such a poor form. Mancini has several other alternatives like Xherdan Shaqiri, who has been a revelation since his permanent move from Bayern Munich in the January transfer window. After recently being voted as the worst signing of last January, Podolski also has a tough road ahead of him in order to win over the fans. Inter suffered their first defeat, after three consecutive victories, in the home match against Fiorentina last weekend. (more…)
