Having just completed a less than impressive half-season long move at Inter Milan, Lukas Podolski’s career has stalled dramatically.
All anybody seems to mention about the forward nowadays is the fact that he has won over 100 caps for Germany so can’t be that bad a squad addition?
Well the fact of the matter is that Podolski is one of those players who doesn’t really do rotation. We saw in the earlier part of the campaign that if the German international isn’t starting, his attitude on the pitch is questionable, despite his loyalty to the fans and upbeat nature off it.
To score Podolski’s Arsenal career out of 10 so far, the former FC Koln man would probably get a 5.5 – 6 as we haven’t really seen him recreate his form in the Bundesliga in the Premier League due to his utility status.
Possessing a rocket of a left foot, there is no doubting that when Podolski strikes a ball, the opposition know about it but it seems time for the Gunners to let him go this summer and perhaps a transfer reunion with FC Koln – where he’d be the main man once more – wouldn’t be such a bad idea.
