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.
At one point, there was a serious danger ofPodolski’s career coming to a grinding halt due to a poor record when it comes to injuries. He was also struggling with homesickness during the early part of his career. This led to the striker being unable to settle down at any of his previous clubs.

He went on to represent top clubs like Bayern Munich, Arsenal, Inter Milan, and Galatasaray during a stellar career. He also ended up making more than 100 appearances for the German national team.
