Earlier this week Arsene Wenger said that Lukas Podolski’s return to the first team fold was imminent, and this morning the German has confirmed that he’ll be training with the first team again.
On his Twitter account he said, “Hope U have a top start into the day?:) Good news: I can start with the team today!!”
He then included the hashtags, “#comeback #WorkHard #AFC #COYG #podolski #poldi #aha.”
Arseblog News is glad that Twitter has a 140 character limit, as we get the sense Podolski could hashtag into infinity.
However, despite being back in training, it’s likely he’ll be given a bit more time before making an appearance in the team with Wenger saying, “It will take a least a week for him to be considered.”
It’s also worth remembering that when he was out injured, the boss urged the German international to bring more to the team, saying, “Lukas Podolski is super talented, he can play very well with others, has great power, can take free kicks and scores goals from anywhere, but he can develop and become better.
“You always have the feeling that he is 80, 90 percent there, but you want him to give 100 per cent and then he’ll be world class. There’s more to come from him.”
Maybe the time off will have given him the chance to refocus, because obviously Wenger believes we’ve yet to see the best of the man with the left foot like Thor’s hammer.13,355 views
