OFFICIAL: Arsenal sign Kölns Podolski Empty Podolski officially confirms Arsenal move on Facebook

Post by hitshot Mon Apr 30, 2012 9:07 am

Hi I will play Arsenal people, from the coming season at FC. This change gives me the opportunity to play at international level in a European top Club. I decided not against, but for this great opportunity in my sporting career. The decision for this step is not easily noticed because of the 1st FC Cologne, the fans and the city for me as something very special. Always in my heart, I will take the FC. We must join together all forces and focus exclusively on the class. Greetings, Poldi (Google Translation)

This is about as official as unofficial gets.

In an official statement on the club’s website confirming the deal, executive board chairman, Claus Horstmann admitted that Koln had offered the player new “competitive” terms on his contract, but with just one year left on his current deal, a transfer was best for the team.

Horstmann said: “We deeply regret his step, which is not a decision against [the club] but for the good of his own career. Koln were prepared to extend Lukas Podolski's contract on the basis of a competitive offer.

“Nonetheless, this early transfer decision offers scope and planning security for the next season. We will jump at this opportunity to reinvest these transfer earnings back into our team's quality and into the promotion of our youth squads.

“Lukas has helped the club in many difficult situations, Lukas has left a mark on Koln's reputation and we feel the need to thank him for numerous great football experiences at Koln.”

The move has long been in the offing, with Gunners' manager Arsene Wenger publicly stating his admiration for the former Bayern Munich player in March, and the striker's former boss Stale Solbakken admitting just two weeks ago that a move to England was on the cards.

And the 26-year-old has thanked the Koln fans before his summer switch to the Emirates Stadium: “The move to Arsenal provides a great opportunity for me to gain experience in international competitions at a European top club.

“I have made this decision not against Koln but for this great opportunity and the good of my own individual development.

“This was not an easy decision for me at all, as Koln, our fans and the city are something special for me.

“I will always carry Koln in my heart. We need to pool our strengths now and have to be fully focussed on our survival in the Bundesliga.”

Podolski will stay at Koln for the remainder of the campaign to help their ongoing fight against relegation before moving to England.

So do we all bandwagon and switch from supporting Köln to Arsenal?

Or do we stay true to the home of a god?

It is said that the Greek gods would go to Egypt every once in a while. Köln has become Mount Olympus to Poldi's Zeus. Mount Olympus is awesome and we are in awe of it but we must follow Zeus.

Be jealous. :coffee:

In all seriousness, I'm not expecting him to be great right away as I think he'll need a period of settling in (being a "hometown boy", so to speak). Been a while since we've signed someone everyone knows about, though, so I am excited.

Tbh, I would have wanted him to replace shitty Malouda in Chelsea, but Arsenal is a great for him too.

Efficiency/Organisational thing.

Hard to plan the next season if you have new players coming in at the last second.
