Arsenal’s Lukas Podolski: I’m close to my best form
Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski believes he close to his best form after scoring twice against Coventry in FA Cup
Lucas Podolski believes he is edging towards his best form after the Arsenal striker’s brace in the 4-0 FA Cup victory over Coventry City on Friday night.
The Germany international found the back of the net twice in the opening 27 minutes at Emirates Stadium as the Gunners booked their place in the fifth-round draw.
I don’t know if I’m 100 per cent but I think I played very good [against Coventry]
And Podolski, who was sidelined for four months with a hamstring injury this season, reckons he is slowing getting back to his best after an extended lay-off.
“It was a long time for me because I never had a long injury before,” Podolski told Arsenal’s website.
“It was not easy, you work hard, you train hard and finally you’re back. I don’t know if I’m 100 per cent but I think I played very good [against Coventry] and we’ll see in the next week.
“You are always happy when you play and score goals for the team so it was good for me, good for the team and important in the end to be in the next round.
“In the second half they [Coventry] had fight and they had chances so it’s not easy against lower league teams.
“It was important we did the job, we are in the next round now and I on Sunday is the next draw so we will wait for the next game in the FA Cup.”
