Podolski: I am with a top club and pleased with the professionalism here.

By Mugais Jahangir.

Lukas Podolski is pleased with the professionalism of Arsenal and is looking forward to play against his former club Bayern Munich in the Champions League. In his latest interview, the German international is confident that he will come out on top.

Podolski has already scored eight goals in all competitions for Arsenal since his transfer from Cologne. Here's what he had to say on how he has settled in the Premier League:

"I am in a new country, I am learning a new mentality. I am with a top club and pleased with how professional this club is run. Everything has changed for the better.

I have only been here for half a year, so it might be too early to take stock. I did understand people questioning that I never made it at Bayern and got relegated with Cologne. But I proved my qualities before the transfer. I was, and I am, convinced I will come out on top here."

On the Champions League tie with Bayern:

"That's a dream draw. You have to take on every opponent if you want to lift the trophy. Of course, it is a disadvantage we are at home first. I am looking forward to seeing Uli Hoeness, Jupp Heynckes, Franck Ribery, the colleagues from the national team and the many others who have been there during my time at Bayern."
