Podolski is moving to Arsenal from FC Cologne.
âHeâs a good lad and a very good football player,â Hitzlsperger told talkSPORT. âLooking at the Euros it wasnât his tournament to be honest but I think he needs a change.
âHe needs to get away from Germany, play a different style of football and play in a team that is very good where they donât just focus on him.
âAt Cologne he was the main man and he couldnât always fulfill his potential but he is a very good player and I wish him good luck.â
