Former Arsenal and Germany star Lukas Podolski becomes judge for German version of Britain’s Got Talent ‘Das Supertalent’

LUKAS PODOLSKI signed up to become a judge on the German version of Britain’s Got Talent.

The former Arsenal and Galatasaray star announced his new “club” on Tuesday after leaving Turkish squad Antalyaspor.

Das Supertalent begins its 15th series this fall and regularly attracts nearly three million weekly viewers.

Winners from past years include several dog acts, opera singers and a professional regurgitator.

But they’ll have to make an effort to impress Podolski, 36, after vowing to be “honest … fairly” when he replaces pop singer Dieter Bohlen.

He told RTL: “I have always enjoyed watching Das Supertalent with my family, now I will be sitting on the panel myself.

“I am excited about these and other new challenges at my new club.

“I always wonder how much talent can people have? But there are always new surprises.”

Podolski has vowed not to retire from football after becoming a free agent at the end of last season.

Spells in Italy, Japan and Turkey – as well as running a series of kebab shops – followed his two and a half years with Arsenal.

The forward won the World Cup with Germany and hung up his international cleats after scoring the game-winning goal in a 1-0 win over England in 2017.

He said earlier this summer in search of a new team: “It’s important to me that the overall picture matches. The city, the club, the concept.

“I am now 36 years old, so it is clear that I will no longer be making the jump to an absolute top club.”
