Podolski: Lack of silverware at Arsenal didn't concern me

Lukas Podolski insists he had no second thoughts about joining Arsenal due to their lack of silverware.

Lukas Podolski insists he had no second thoughts about joining Arsenal due to their lack of silverware.

Podolski is acutely aware of Arsenal’s failure to win a trophy since 2005 but is quick to argue it is equally important for a player to enjoy his football.

He told The Sun: “It’s not important only to win the trophies. You have a lot of people win a World Cup and now they have nothing. They do nothing. People don’t speak about them.

“We will fight for the Premier League but it was not important for me when I signed. I wasn’t saying ‘Oh, they’ve won nothing for seven years. I don’t go there’. I like this club. I like the people.”
