Podolski posted a picture on Instagram holding an Arsenal shirt with written wishes for Rice. Apparently a gift for the former Gunner.

Since it was announced that former Arsenal defender and former assistant manager Pat Rice has been hospitalised with diagnosed cancer there has been an overwhelming support from players and fans. And it continues.

Arsenal’s striker Lukas Podolski, who is keen to make his comeback on the field, joined the “Get Well Soon Pat” movement today. The German international posted a picture on Instagram holding an Arsenal shirt with written wishes for Rice. Apparently a gift for the former Gunner.

The 64-year-old served under Arsene Wenger for 16 years before retiring in 2012. He recorded 528 appearances as a defender for Arsenal prior to that between 1966 and 1980.

Here are other examples for the “Get Well Soon Pat” movement.
