The German international was clearly pleased to be playing for Inter Milan yesterday.
The German World Cup winner has spent much of this season on the bench at Arsenal and has repeatedly mentioned to the press his desire to play regular football, whether it was at Arsenal or elsewhere.
Despite being an ever popular figure with the Arsenal faithful it appears he had simply got bored of waiting for his chance for the club, taking the opportunity to move on to pastures new.
And yesterday he got his first taste of action for the Nerazzurri.
He came on in the 54th minute of the game, impressing fans with his performance for his new team as Inter fought back from 1-0 down to draw 1-1 with Serie A leaders Juventus.
And it would appear Podolski was happy with is debut as well, posting this on his official Instagram account today...
Good performance from the team last night, enjoyed my first game in an Inter jersey! Looking forward to the San Siro next! Abbiamo giocato una bella partita ieri, la mia prima con la maglia dell'Inter! Sono desideroso di giocare a San Siro adesso! Sempre Forza Inter #Poldi #Inter #ForzaInter #SeriaA #Italy
