New Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski can’t wait to work with Arsene Wenger, said the Germany man.
Podolski is set to lead the attack for the Gunners in the Premier League, next season.
And Wenger’s brand of attacking football is a big cause for excitement, he said.
“What I like about him is his passion for attacking football. He aims to play with style and flair all the time. Those are his principles and he’ll never compromise on them,” Podolski told ESPN.
“Some people are disappointed with him, but they need to realise what a great coach they have.”
Podolski hailed Wenger’s faithfulness to Arsenal, as well.
“Mr Wenger could have moved on to another club, I am sure, but instead chose to stay and build something over the long term.
“He lives and dies by his own ideas and Arsenal is his baby. His reputation has been built on improving players and if he can help me take my game up a notch or two I’ll be delighted.”
