FC Koln’s Lukas Podolski could be on his way out at the end of this season- Bundesliga News

FC Koln striker, Lukas Podolski, has hinted at his departure from the club at the end of this season. He confirmed about his frustration at the club for not being able to win silverware and could consider a reasonable offer from any of the top European outfits.

Podolski was talking in the wake of his team’s humiliating 3-0 defeat to rejuvenated Borussia Monchengladbach. The Billy Goats played host to the Foals on Friday, November 25, at RheinEnergieStadion.

Mike Hanke scored a brace to go along with a solitary goal from Juan Arango, marking a comfortable win for Lucien Favre’s men.

This was Koln’s seventh defeat of the season which prompted Podolski to decide his future at the club.

The player admitted to his love for the club and the city, but clearly stated his intent of parting ways in order to win silverware on a regular basis. He told that Koln have been unable to sign big name players and as a result are short on trophies.

Podolski opined that the club still has a long way to go if they want to win trophies and the change has to be initiated at the highest level. He advised the officials to bring in some strikers in order to start winning games on a consistent basis.

When asked about his desire of parting ways with the club, the striker told that he had no such intentions of leaving RheinEnergieStadion, but the lack of trophies and inconsistent approach has prompted him to make a decision at the end of this term.

While speaking to Die Welt of his possible departure, the 26-year-old further elaborated:

"I was told the plan was to get back into Europe here, but we have failed and of course I have to ask myself why. Whenever I am with the national team, I always notice people shaking their heads when yet another story emerges from Koln which has nothing to do with sport."

"My family and friends may live here and I know every corner of the city. But if I am in top condition, then I think I could fit into any side in Europe. I am not forced to stay in Koln." Podolski concluded.
