Arsenal boss Wenger hails experienced Podolski

Arsene Wenger has credited the experience Lukas Podolski brings to the table as a key reason why the Germany international has made such a strong start to life at Arsenal, the Guardian has reported.

Following his summer move from Koln, Podolski, 27, has hit the ground running, netting three times in his first five games despite mostly operating from the left wing. Wenger added that as well as having seen all there is to see in world football, Podolski’s character means he is well-suited to English football and, in particular, Arsenal.

Wenger noted that Podolski has made over 100 appearances for Germany, with the Guardian adding that the Poland-born forward has appeared at every European Championship or World Cup since 2004.

The manager went on to list further Podolski’s attributes. Wenger said: “He's a very sociable guy. He always has a smile on his face. He also has a good understanding with [left-back] Kieran Gibbs as well. He is a clinical finisher.

Podolski moved to the Emirates Stadium for a fee the Guardian puts at around £10m, having previously played for Bayern Munich as well as Koln, who were relegated from the Bundesliga last season.
