DID YOU KNOW ?

Lukas Podolski was born to Waldemar Podolski, who played professional football in Poland and won the Polish championship in 1980 with Szombierki Bytom, and to Krystyna Podolska, a former member of the Polish national handball team in the Silesian industrial town of Gliwice (near Katowice), Poland.

He grew up in Bergheim, North Rhine-Westphalia, and later in Pulheim, both near Cologne.

In 1987, when Lukas Podolski was two years old, his family emigrated from Poland to West Germany and was given Aussiedler status as a result of his paternal grandparents having German citizenship prior to World War II (Gliwice had until 1945 been a part of Germany as Gleiwitz).

Although he was eligible to play for Germany and Poland, Podolski chose to play for Germany. In an interview Podolski said that the Polish football association never cared about him until he started playing for the German U-21 national team and received coverage in the media.


He is a fan of the polish side Górnik Zabrze.
