All right with Zabrze! Lukas Podolski continues in Poland


Former international Lukas Podolski is far from thinking of quitting. After the world champion had rejected the end of his career just a month ago, the former Bundesliga striker of 1. FC Köln has now unveiled his new club.

As consistent media reports reported on Sunday, the former FC Bayern professional is moving to the Polish league with Gornik Zabrze for the coming season. The club from the neighboring village of Podolski’s birthplace Gliwice first published a video on Monday in which a black jersey is flocked with the number ten. A little later, Podolski posted a post on his social media accounts in which he presented the jersey with the words “Next Chapter”.

The 36-year-old has been revealing on his homepage for a long time that Podolski always wanted to play for the club he was a kid. “My big dream is to end my footballing career with Gornik at some point,” it says there.

After stations in Germany, England, Italy, Turkey and Japan, the Ekstraklasa in Poland is already the sixth professional league in which the left-footed player will play.

Podolski’s long path from the youth of 1. FC Köln, with whom he rose from the 2. Bundesliga in 2004/05 and became the top scorer, led back to the cathedral city (2009-12) after a three-year stint at Bayern (2006-09) . After saying goodbye to Cologne, “Prinz Poldi” moved to Arsenal FC in London for 15 million euros (2012-15). A six-month loan to Inter Milan (2015) was followed by a move to Turkey to Galatasaray (2015-17). Then Podolski moved to the Far East to join the Japanese first division club Vissel Kobe (2017-20). For the second half of the past season, the attacker returned to the Turkish Süper Lig and joined Antalyaspor. Now Podolski is continuing his football adventure in his home country Poland with Gornik Zabrze.

It remains to be seen how Podolski’s new football commitment can be reconciled with his new job as a juror on the RTL casting show “Das Supertalent”. Just last Tuesday, the Cologne broadcaster announced that the Effzeh icon could be won over for this and other entertainment shows in the sports sector.
