Arsenal star Lukas Podolski has admitted his loan move to Inter Milan was a mistake and vowed to fight for his place at the Emirates.
The German international moved to the San Siro in January but admits the decision to leave the club short-term was a wrong one.
“I’ve always felt comfortable there. With the fans, with the team and also with the manager. I’m going back to play, I have to say my qualities suit Arsenal,” he was quoted on the Sky Sports website as saying.
“Inter? Last season went how it went. English football is the one which best suits my style but I know how suddenly everything can change.
“I have characteristics to help different teams but it was a mistake to go to Inter with no redemption clauses.
“In football there are times when everything doesn’t work out for the best. You’re not always playing as a starter and you just have to accept the decisions and work on your own game. That’s what I did but now I’m looking forward.”
