German international Per Mertesacker is hopeful that Arsenal fans will see the best of Lukas Podolski in near future.
The 27-year-old forward, who scored 79 league goals for FC Koln, in two stints with the club, made his competitive debut for Arsenal against Sunderland in the opening day fixture at the Emirates.
However, he couldn’t find his name in the score-sheet as the game ended goalless with the striker being substituted on 64th minute. Mertesacker, his fellow compatriot, feels the striker is only getting started.
Speaking to the Arsenal Player, he says “It was tough for him [on Saturday] because it was his first game up front,”
“I think he will get used to the game, switch on quickly and score a lot for us.
“You have seen that he has a good technique and he is good in possession. We have the players who can pass him the ball. He is a good finisher too and we will see that in a couple of weeks.
“We saw a lot of misunderstandings [against Sunderland], especially in the first half. One guy maybe wanted the one-two, the other in behind. So we need a bit of time, especially with the new players. We had a few new players who were playing their first game over 90 minutes. But I think it is coming.”
