Podolski is moving to Arsenal from FC Cologne.
â€śHeâ€™s a good lad and a very good football player,â€ť Hitzlsperger told talkSPORT. â€śLooking at the Euros it wasnâ€™t his tournament to be honest but I think he needs a change.
â€śHe needs to get away from Germany, play a different style of football and play in a team that is very good where they donâ€™t just focus on him.
â€śAt Cologne he was the main man and he couldnâ€™t always fulfill his potential but he is a very good player and I wish him good luck.â€ť
