Lukas Podolski made an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport to discuss how he is settling in Serie A:

“Compared to us Germans, you are more easy-going and relaxed, I went into a restaurant at 19.00 and it was empty, I left at 22.00 and it was starting to fill up.”

“What motivates me is the pleasure of being in contact with the football, in two years it could all be over and I don’t want to waste a single day, I don’t do this for money.”
