Klinsi wants to keep Podolski at Bayern

Bayern Munich coach Jurgen Klinsmann has no intention of selling unsettled striker Lukas Podolski. The 23-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from the German champions and back to former club Cologne this summer, but Bayern appear determined to hang on to their man. 'That (the sale of Podolski) does not come in any way into the question. We need at least three top strikers - and Lukas is one of the three,' said Klinsmann, before allaying Podolski's fears over a lack of first-team football. 'He has a duty to challenge the other two (Miroslav Klose and Luca Toni), to provide them with competition. 'Lukas will get his games.' Having held 'positive' talks with Podolski, Klinsmann now intends to nurture the highly-rated forward. Klinsmann said: 'I told him what I told him before the European Championships: that he has a lot of talent, that he has already shown a lot in his young years, but also that he still has some more steps to take in order to become better. 'I would like and will help him with that. Podolski, who scored his first goal of pre-season in Bayern's 11-1 friendly win over a supporters' club in Nabburg on Sunday, admits he has felt unsettled in Bavaria but now appears content at the thought of staying. Speaking to Bayern's official website, Podolski stated: 'I have not felt at home in Munich. With the birth of my son though that has got many times better. I will do my best in pre-season. 'I am concentrating now fully on the season. I am looking forward to it.'
