Ex-Arsenal star Lukas Podolski opens kebab shop in Cologne, 1,000 people attend opening

The German has opened his ‘Mangal Doener’ restaurant in hometown Cologne – and got a huge reception

Former Germany, Arsenal and Bayern Munich forward Podolski is currently in Cologne receiving treatment on a thigh injury.

But while he’s there, the 32-year-old – who now plays for Vissel Kobe in the J.League – opened his own kebab shop which attracted over 1,000 hungry fans to its opening.

Some loyal supporters spent over five hours queuing for one of Podolski’s delicious doners.


The ex-Gunner opened the restaurant with his two fellow co-owners, before making kebabs and posing for photos at the opening ceremony on Saturday.

At least that’s his retirement plan sorted.
