Poldi hits back at Poles

Published Add your comment

Germany striker Lukas Podolski has ridiculed a threat by a Polish politician to withdraw his Polish passport by revealing he does not even have one.

The Bayern Munich forward, who was born in Poland but moved to Germany as a two-year old and grew up near Cologne, scored twice as Germany beat Poland 2-0 on Sunday, prompting Polish politician Miroslav Orzechowski to threaten to take away his passport.

"The funny thing is, I don´t even have a Polish passport," said Podolski in the Kolner Express newspaper.
