Poldi opens kebab shop

52

Lukas Podolski has expanded his burgeoning commercial empire in his hometown of Cologne by opening a kebab restaurant called Mangal Döner.

The slightly barmy World Cup winner, who already owns a clothing store called Street Kicker and an ice cream parlour named Ice Cream United, launched the new venture on Saturday.

Poldi, who left Arsenal in 2015, plays his football in Japan these days for Vissel Kobe but made the trip back to Cologne to greet and serve fans on the restaurant’s opening night. He also posed for photographs cutting a massive stump of doner meat. As you do.

Speaking to Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger newspaper, he explained, “Ideas just come — I don’t even really have a business plan right now.”

He added: “Opening a five-star restaurant isn’t my style — I’m not the type that wears a suit.”

Arseblog News wasn’t invited to the opening, but we’ve had a tip-off that the restaurant’s playlist is unique, with hits, stars and styles on the jukebox that include:

  • Doner leave me this way
  • Doner Summer
  • Shawarma police
  • Pita Andre
  • Durum and Bass
  • Wrap music
  • Pita sweet symphony
  • Jason Donervan

Emmanuel Eboue spent 7years at arsenal and was ignored by arseblog’s former player section at probably the lowest point of his life. Podolski spent 3years at Arsenal and the former player section wanks at every news about him. Not cool!!!

I don’t think it’s deliberate! But it would be nice if Arseblog brings us more news about Eboue so we can reminisce. Also, on the off-chance that he reads this blog, maybe Eboue will know how loved he is
