Cologne –

No general meeting of 1. FC Köln without a discussion about his prodigal son: Lukas Podolski (36) is looking for a new job after his time at Antalyaspor. Of course, on Thursday evening (June 17th) an FC member asked about Podolski’s return to the Geißbockheim.

  • Lukas Podolski wants to continue playing for two years
  • FC board of directors: “We are in dialogue with Lukas Podolski”
  • Lukas Podolski contradicts: “The board is and was not in contact with me”

Lukas Podolski plans to continue his career

Lukas Podolski is currently on vacation and is exploring options for his future. The world champion recently announced that he wanted to play for a while and then tackle his second career.

“We heard that Lukas wants to continue for two years. I can reveal this much: He won’t play for 1. FC Köln in the new season, ”said President Werner Wolf (64) at the FC general meeting.

And Wolf added: “We are in a good dialogue with Lukas Podolski.”

But the dialogue doesn’t seem to be quite right. During the meeting, the 2014 world champion spoke up via Twitter and contradicted: “During the general meeting of the FC it was declared that I a.) Will not return to the FC in the coming season, but b.) With me in one good dialogue. a.) I can confirm, b.) not. The board of directors of 1. FC Köln is and was not in contact with me. “

When asked about the denial, the President replied again well after midnight, specifying. “I said Lukas Podolski is in contact with 1. FC Köln and he does that once or twice a week with managing director Alexander Wehrle,” said Wolf.

Wehrle then confirmed this: “We have a continuous exchange of information about confidential projects, let’s see what the future brings.”
