Lukas Podoslki is not scared of lots of stuff.
Clowns, for example. Zombies. Terence Trent D’Arby. Angry moose. Or vampire bats. Or blood in his poo. Nor is he scared of new players coming to Arsenal because that’s part and parcel of life at any football club.
As the club are linked with Luis Suarez, the German international says he welcomes new players and wants the team to be as strong as possible.
“I’m happy when players come in,” Podolski told the official website.
“I will play with the best players in the world but the Club and the boss make the decision. I’m not scared about big names – I’m happy when big names come in. When a big striker or a big defender comes in, they help the team and they help me. We will see what happens.”
So far little has happened, but despite having faith in the players we currently have, the former Cologne man is also eager for new faces for the benefits they bring.
“Every season is the same; players come in and go out. The newspapers write a lot of names but I think we have a good team and a good atmosphere here. When players come in, it’s good for the club.
“We are at a big club at Arsenal, so when all players are fit and we don’t have injuries, there’s a big competition. Every player loves to play football and nobody wants to sit on the bench.”
