Lukas Podolski would've been given a chance to show his worth at the UEFA cup match tomorrow, but alas, he won't be flying with Bayern. He has come down with the flu and will be forced to miss Thursday's game. Hopefully, he will be fit in time for Bayern's matchday Sunday.
Other breaking news is according to Eurosport Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has said Podolski is going nowhere.
He told newspaper TZ: "Even if Bremen make another effort to sign him - and nobody has officially contacted us so far - then it will all be in vain.
"The player will not be going anywhere in the winter break.
"We want him to be happy here, to achieve his sporting goals and to play football."
