Podolski had a difficult at Bayern earlier in his career.
â€œI had a great time at Bayern for three years. I have lots of memories of playing for the club and I am proud," he told The Sun.
â€œI wish I had achieved more there. I won the Cup and the League. Playing for Bayern was still a help, in my life generally. But it went so quickly.
â€œBayern is in the past. Now I am at Arsenal and looking forward to achieving things here. I feel it is not productive when you talk about what did or didnâ€™t work.
â€œIf I am being honest, it would be more difficult if Arsenal were playing Cologne. They are my team. My club. Emotionally, it would have been far more intense.
â€œI was there from the age of 10, joined Bayern, and went back there before playing for Arsenal."
