Arsenal attacker Podolski no fan of German legend Vogts

Arsenal attacker Lukas Podolski admits Berti Vogts is not on his Christmas card list.

The only time Podolski gets serious is when he is reminded that former Germany manager Vogts - who is now boss of Azerbaijan - rates him as a lazy man-about-town.

Podolski told The Sun: "He is a coach in Azerbaijan and maybe he doesn't have a TV to watch the games. I don't like it when people are in another country and they make a decision on you as a player.

"How can that happen if you don't watch the games, or watch training and don't even know me?

"I don't think it's unfair, he can talk about me all the time because it is not a problem for me."
