Lukas Podolski has intimated that he has no intention of leaving Arsenal in January and pledges to fight for more first-team opportunities.
The German has started just ONE game for us this season – the 2-1 League Cup defeat to Southampton – and has subsequently been linked with winter moves to former club Koln, Juventus – and even Tottenham!
He did, to his credit, denounce the Spurs story by claiming on Twitter that he would swap us for White Hart Lane when ‘hell freezes over’. What a guy.
And the 29-year-old has taken to social media once again, writing on Instagram:
“Once a Gooner, always a Gooner. Let’s keep fighting & my time will come. Thanks to you fans for the support.”
We can think of worse news to kick off a Monday morning
