Lukas Podolski: A Proud Gooner (VIDEO: Debut Brace)

Well Lukas Podolski certainly seems to be making an impact at Arsenal for all the right reasons.

The German has only been a Gooner for a few months now but he already has the Gunners fans and players on board, and is looking like a fabulous bit of business.

The former Bayern Munich striker has been full of positive things to say about the club ever since he first touched down in London town and isn’t showing any sign of stopping.

Podolski made his debut on Sunday against his former club FC Koln and put in a sterling performance, scoring a brace and looks as if he could be a really big player for Arsenal this season.

But in the meantime, this is what Podolski has had to say.

“I have felt like a part of Arsenal from the first day and I am very proud to play here and wear the shirt,” Podolski told Arsenal Player. 

“I enjoyed it a lot. Before the game a lot of the players were surprised about the city and about the stadium. It was a great match and in my first game I scored two goals, so it was very good. It was a good test for us and I hope we can win against Sunderland next week. 

“It was not so easy [to score against Cologne]. I played a lot of games for a lot of years in Cologne. They were my club when I was a young boy, so it is not easy to score two goals against your team. 

“You see after the game that [the fans] still love me! I was very surprised about the Arsenal fans because there were a lot in the stadium. I heard them cry my name and I was very surprised!

“We have been having two sessions a day, now it is back to London, a day off and then we can start to concentrate on the game against Sunderland.” 

Let’s hope that he can continue his good form in the club’s Premier League opener at home to Sunderland on Saturday.

Below are his goals from Sunday, happy viewing!
