Lukas Podolski ended his international career on a high note

Lukas Podolski decided to hang up his international playing boots on March 22 of 2017 during Germany´s friendly match against England which concluded with the team of Joachim Low claiming a 1-0 triumph.


The only goal of this friendly match was netted by Lukas Podolski himself as the 32 year old forward scored in his last competitive match at the global stage.

Joachim Low is the head coach of the German national side and he has been in that position since 2006. Even prior to Low´s appointment as the manager of Germany in 2006, he had already been selected as the assistant manager in 2004. This means that Joachim Low has seen and worked alongside Lukas Podolski throughout his entire career in Germany.

“He is a unique specimen; no one can really replace him. For me it will be a beautiful moment but a sad one because he was one of the greatest players ever to come out of Germany´´ (more…)

Michael Ballack asks Players visiting to China to compare their Salaries

Mar

Michael Ballack reckons that even though there is the possibility of a bumper salary hike for the players if they take the route to China, the players should ask themselves if the salary that they are getting in UK or in any other part of Europe is not sufficient for them.


If it’s sufficient already and the players are capable of having any materialistic luxury in their lives that they want with that salary, then what’s the point of looking for a salary hike? What do they want more money for?

In the words of Ballack, “It amazes you the kind of amounts you get to hear of because it’s far more than the amounts that you generally hear of here in UK and mind you, there is no scarcity of money in UK. Even when I was around I think the salaries were pretty high, even mine was high and I think it’s even higher for the players these days, I am talking about UK.” (more…)

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

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 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…)

Lukas Podolski says Wenger never showed him Respect

Jan

Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski has had one parting shot at his former manager, Arsene Wenger, by saying that the Frenchman never showed respect to him. Podolski was a £ 10 million signing from Germany a few years ago, but the striker rarely played especially in the last few years.

The German forward failed to start a single match in the league this season and he played in only 99 minutes before joining Inter Milan on a season-long loan deal. This is expected to be converted into a permanent move in the summer. Wenger has given a start to Podolski only in two matches and was forced to do so because of injuries.

Podolski has revealed that the Frenchman was extremely cold towards him in the final few weeks of his Arsenal career. He even says that Wenger did not call him when he knew that he was leaving. (more…)
