A few weeks ago, the long-running transfer saga regarding Lukas Podolski’s arrival at Gornick Zabrze came to an end. It is undoubtedly an exciting transfer, after all, the world champion signs a contract with the Polish club. Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano reported on the ongoing negotiations between the Zabrze team and the former German actor. However, it was officially announced on July 6 that Gliwice-born Lukas Podolsky would commit Roosevelt’s team to a one-year contract.
All supporters of Gurnnik Zabrze, and not only them, waited for the arrival of the former football player, including. FC Cologne, Bayern Munich, Arsenal London and Inter Milan will fulfill the promise they made a few years ago. From year to year, faith in the words of Lukas Podolski waned, because the 36-year-old would have preferred to visit the world. He has played for Japan as well as Turkey, but this summer he decided to sign a contract with a club close to his heart.
In one of the first conversations, he announced that he was not in an ideal position and that he needed several weeks to get into a form that would allow him to perform regularly. Due to the fact that the Polish league resumes football matches very early, the German of Polish origin was not yet ready to compete in the PKO Ekstraklasa in the first round. So Zabrze had to adapt without him, but they fell in Szczecin with local Pogo 2-0.
A week later, veteran Lukas Podolski made his debut with Gornick Zabrze. Coach Jan Urban decided to allow the 36-year-old to enter immediately after the break in the competition with Lech Poznan, with a score of 1: 1. Zabrze fans welcomed him wholeheartedly.
In the next round, Zabrze will play Stal Mielec in front of their home crowd. Perhaps the famous “Poldi” will get another chance to introduce himself to his fans.
