Lukas Podolski takes swipe at Tottenham Hotspur

Published Add your comment

Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski used a Twitter Q+A to put the boot into bitter local rivals Tottenham Hotspur last night, claiming that he would rather retire than play for Spurs before his career finishes.

Podolski took some time to field queries from fans on social media yesterday and was asked whether he would ever consider signing for Spurs if things didn't work out at the Emirates.

The German international chose to take the question on and endear himself to Arsenal fans further by insisting retirement was a better option than turning out at White Hart Lane every week.

A short but sweet response to the question from @whosuspendedme saw Podolski respond: "Retire".

The 28-year-old has since deleted the post but that will not stop his place as a cult hero among Gunners fans being cemented further, despite a stop-start campaign ruined by injuries thus far.

Podolski has scored three goals in four Premier League appearances so far this season but faces a fierce fight to win a place in the Arsenal starting XI, with Santi Cazorla first-choice on the left flank and Olivier Giroud firmly established as the club's leading centre-forward.
