That disturbs Podolski in Japan
The move to Japan obviously causes Lukas Podolski trouble. However, the world champion wants to take the lead in his new club. Lukas Podolski has admitted that there are problems with the conversion of his new home country Japan. The humid weather caused him a lot of problems at the beginning:”In the first weeks it was already extreme. It’s a heavy pressure here,”said the world champion to the kicker,”but I’m getting used to it,”and Vissel Kobe’s striker also had adjustment difficulties on the pitch,”Football in Japan is different. The level in Europe is higher and everything else would be a lie,”said Podolski, adding that it is normal for him to need more time to understand how football works here. Despite the initial problems, the 32-year-old is still one of the leading players in his new club,”The club wants me to lead the way, that I have a broad chest, that I am direct. I try to get the other players there,”he said, adding that the Japanese mentality makes many people reserved, nice and polite. But on the pitch, this is not helpful. Vissel Kobe, however, is only 11th in the Japanese J-League after four defeats in five games. Podolski and Co. failed in the league cup. in the quarter-finals.
