Dear Lukas, you’ve touched us all with your unique and open-minded personality! You’ve always played with a lot of heart and this is the way we’ll remember you - wearing our national team colors! We’ve enjoyed every minute with you and are looking forward to seeing you play in Japan this summer. I wish you all the luck in the world! Servus and see you soon, my friend!

Dear Lukas,

“For years we’ve shared a friendship, one that does not often occur in life” – that’s how your letter for my farewell from the national team started back then in the Welt am Sonntag. And I wouldn’t know how better to start mine.

I still clearly remember the moment of my substitution in my final international game, and when I saw you sitting in the stands amongst my family, in the midst of those people who hold a special place in my life – and you are one of those people as well.

With your positive attitude, open-minded manner and not least your inimitable hammer of a left foot, you not only delighted me, but also the English, German and Turkish audiences equally. Therefore I have no doubt, that you will quickly turn the Japanese fans into Poldi-fans as well, as you’re now heading towards the Far East.

Goodbye, Poldi my friend. See you soon!

Your Basti
