Lukas Podolski back Arsene Wenger: “He built this club from nothing”
Lukas Podolski has back under fire manager Arsene Wenger, claiming that his former boss “is Arsenal”.
The German captained his side in his 130th and final appearance for the country, and then had some words of support for Wenger when speaking to Sky Sports.
“I follow nearly every match – when not live, on social media – and I don’t know what’s happened.
“Arsene Wenger is a good guy and a good coach. He built this club from nothing to now, and it will be interesting what happens in the next months.
“I don’t know who the guy is that can replace him. He is Arsenal.”
Podolski is just the latest in a long line of players, past and present, to come out and back the manager.
The German perhaps didn’t have the best of spells at the club but still backed Wenger. There are rumours over his relationships with players but it seems as though many of those that have worked with him still believe in him and his abilities.
