Arsenal’s Podolski hints at Koln return

Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski has said only one thing in his career could top winning the World Cup with Germany - his eventual return to first club Koln, according to ESPN.

Podolski left the Cologne-based outfit for the Gunners in 2012, ending his second spell with Die Geissbocke. His first marked the start of his career in 2003 before switching three years later to Bayern Munich. Podolski stayed in Bavaria for three years before making the return journey.

And now the 29-year-old has suggested he will one day be back at Koln, believing the sensation would be even greater than lifting the World Cup, as he did this summer. “Only re-joining Koln would be more amazing than this, but I shouldn't say too much or else I'll get myself into bother,” Podolski said.

Podolski was speaking from Cologne after being rewarded for his part in Germany’s World Cup win with an honour that had previously only been granted to John F. Kennedy, Neil Armstrong and Pope John Paul II.

“Unfortunately I wasn't able to bring the trophy along with me, but I won it also for FC Koln and the city,” Podolski added. “You are also world champions.”

Koln were promoted to the Bundesliga at the end of last season and Podolski has previously hinted he would one day play for the club again, once his time at Arsenal is over.

His two spells at Koln produced 86 goals in 181 appearances, while to date he has featured on 69 occasions for Arsenal, scoring 28 times.
