The Germany national team manager, Oliver Bierhoff has advised the Arsenal-owned attacker to look for a club where he can find the joy again after his difficult season in Serie A.
He insisted that Lukas Podolski had made a wrong decision to leave Arsenal for Inter in the January transfer market.
Podolski joined the Italy Serie A for a six-month loan deal earlier this year, but he has so far hardly struggled to satisfy the expectations of San Siro’s resident.
It did not seem possible for this Poland-born attacker to stay at Internazionale beyond his loan period. Furthermore, Bierhoff had encouraged the Germany winger to choose a team that suits him during the period before the end of the season.
Bierhoff in his statement told that the 29 years old is a player who needs space and lives from his movement. He added, as an offensive force, it is a crucial matter for him to have some confidence. He considered, Podolski’s moving to Inter Milan in Serie A had been a big and a tough step at the same time. He came to the club that struggles as well and has not discovered itself.
Moreover, Bierhoff was really sure that the player who was born on June 4th 1985 can come across his strength if he can regain his confidence, if he feels the confidence of the team and the coach, and if he can find the happiness. The point was he can play in his total performance when the atmosphere is supportive. Whether or not Inter will be the place where he can discover all of that issues is hard to say.
In addition, still quoted from the statement of the retired German former football player who scored the first brilliant goal in the history of major international football for Germany in the Euro 96 final, when Lukas decides his next club, it is need to be paid attention that he himself has a great feeling toward his decision. The role of the club in its league or their reputation is not that important to be considered, the most important matter is he can find back the joy.
Besides, talking about his record, Oliver Bierhoff said that Podolski really had contributed a lot in the national team over the last two years, so if he is living with a tough team, Bierhoff and the others are there for him. A left-footed attacker that is famous for his strong shot, and technique attacks from the left side is certainly has the potential and the quality. The talented Podolski has made 10 Serie A appearances for Inter so far.
