Lukas Podolski: Family, Home, Faith
If Lukas Podolski were only allowed to ask two questions they would be first whether his family were all healthy and second whether the ball was pumped up. Regardless of whether it’s for Arsenal in the Premier League or for Germany, if you play with that amount of passion, practically every match is a home game.
When Podolski returned to Cologne in early 2009, 21,000 people turned up to watch the first public training session. After three years at Bayern Munich, he decided to turn his back on more lucrative offers to return to his home town. He wanted to come home and play for the club where he signed his first professional contract as a 17-year-old in November 2003. It’s a decision that many saw as taking a sporting step backwards. But Lukas Podolski was acting on his convictions. Following his return to the Rhine, he managed to score 33 goals in 88 games and has also been team captain of 1. FC Köln.
When Cologne finally took the drop into the second division two seasons later, he decided to leave the club of his youth for a second time and make the switch to England.
