Lukas Podolski Out for Six Weeks Due to Foot Injury
Lukas Podolski has received a major setback with the news that he will be out for at least six weeks after suffering a foot injury in training. The former Bayern Munich forward is currently playing withVissel Kobe. The 33-year-old made the switch to this Japanese club back in July 2017 for a fee of around € 2.6 million. This brought an end to his long spell in European football. The striker was expected to move to a lesser league at some point in his career and it has finally arrived towards the tail end of his career.
Yet, this latest injury could be a major setback for the player who has been withVissel Kobe for the last 12 months. During this period, he only featured in 11 games for the J-League outfit and came up with a return of just three goals. The figures were expected to improve in the next few months, as the club recently brought in Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta on a free transfer. The playmaker is regarded as one of the finest in the world and he will be able to provide Podolski with the necessary chances.
