Aug

Former Arsenal and Germany forward Lukas Podolski showed that he has still not lost his scoring touch after managing to find the back of the net in his debut forVissel Kobe.


The German is the latest high profile player to make the switch to the J-League, which is regarded as one of the strongest divisions in Asian football. Possessing one of the strongest left foots in the world, Podolski managed to score from 23 m in order to score his first goal forVissel Kobe. His second came up with an even better timing, as he helped with the hosts take the lead after the opposition had equalised. The game ended up finishing with a 3-1 score.

Podolski has been playing with Turkish club Galatasaray over the last few years, but he has just made the switch toVissel Kobe in a deal worth around $ 5.3 million. This, he has become the biggest import in the J-League after Diego Forlan. The former Manchester United and Atletico Madrid striker played for the likes of Cerezo Osaka during the 2014-15 campaign.

Jun

Lukas Podolski received an emotional goodbye letter from his teammate, Bastian Schweinsteiger before his final international duty on March 22nd, 2017.


The 31-year old made his last appearance for the defending world champions in their 1-0 International Friendly victory over England as the former Arsenal forward found the net at the 69th minute through Andre Schurrle’s assist which sank Gareth Southgate’s men at Signal Iduna Park.

Addressing the letter to Lukas, Schweinsteiger through the German newspaper Welt Am Sonntag, reached out to his friend:

“‘We have been friends for many years, such that rarely happens in life’ – that was the first line of your farewell letter to me then when I was retiring from the national team back then in the Welt am Sonntag, and funny enough I don’t know how better to start mine to you right now.”

Bastian in his letter confessed his invaluable gratitude towards his friend and teammate, Poldoski especially during his retirement.

He thanked him for being there through the good and the bad moments of his career and wished him absolve good luck in his future career. (more…)

Lukas Podoloski To Retire

Jul

Lukas Podoloski of Germany is probably looking to retire which was announced before the Euros.


Before the Euros 2016 started he stated that he was considering retiring from international football after the tournament which would be an easy decision if Germany won the tournament. Podoloski has definitely contributed much too several games in the international arena. Being a forward player of Galatasaray and 31 years of age, he has made about 129 appearances at senior level for the country as well as being part of the 2014 squad that brought the World Cup back to Germany.

He stayed back from active games for some time. For instance the last match that he played for Die Nationalmannschaft resulted in a win of 4-0 score over Gilbraltar. It was, however, in November 2014. He also scored several goals for Australia last year. For Euro 2016 he made about a single appearance where he was a substitute in the game that resulted in a win over Slovakia with a score of 3-0. Podoloski has been taking a slacked form in the games more and more. Hence, even though Mario Gomez was injured, he was not required to start the semifinal game against France.

Lukas Podolski scored the only goal of the game to help his team win the Cup

Lukas Podolski managed to score the unique goal of the match as his team Galatasaray beat rival Fenerbahce to win the Turkish Cup for the third season in a row.


The game, however, was quite average with both teams fearing to make a mistake that could give away a goal. The only goal of the match came in the 33rd minute when Podolski managed to divert a ball that was going wide into the net. Indeed, Jason Denyar appeared to have missed the target but the former Arsenal player reacted well in order to score the goal that will give his team the advantage.

Galatasaray was more than content to sit back after the goal as they waited for Fenerbahce to attack them. Fenerbahce will struggle to create occasions in the match, and they became increasingly frustrated with the way the match was going.

The Fenerbahce coach tried to make changes at the break in order to motivate his team, but the performance on the pitch did not change that much. Indeed, he will even replace former Arsenal and Manchester United striker Robin van Persie since he was ineffective on the pitch. (more…)

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.
