FORMER Arsenal star Lukas Podolski has sparked an angry response after claiming that Wags ‘get on my nerves’.

The 36-year-old believes that many partners of footballers flaunt their relationship to boost their profile online.

Podolski, who was a popular figure amongst the Gunners fanbase during his time in England, pulled no punches in an interview with GALA.

He said: “Most of the players’ women really get on my nerves.

“You didn’t even see many of them before they met a footballer, and then suddenly they make a huge wave on all social media channels.”

The German World Cup winner, who has two children with wife Monika Puchalski, added: “We Podolskis do it our way and are happy with it.

“My wife has zero ambitions to produce herself.”

His statement caused a furious reaction from Jessica Contento – wife of former Bayern Munich left-back Diego.

She told BILD: “In general, I cannot understand his statement. Here the cliché is taken up again, against which many player women, including myself, have been fighting for years.

“That’s not okay, he lumps everyone together.”

Contento continued: “The fact is that with such a statement you have no chance of being perceived differently, for example as an entrepreneur, mother or working woman who does not depend on the man.

“But when you make such a statement as such a great personality, you reinforce the negative image of the player’s wife, with which many women struggle.

“That also speaks against the principles that a football player pursues in a club.”

FA Cup winner Podolski is set to become a free agent next month when his contract at Turkish side Antalyaspor expires at the end of June.

A move to Mexican outfit Queretaro could be on the cards, while the forward has not ruled out a third stint at beloved club Cologne.

Speaking of his future, he said: “For me, it’s about playing another year or two, having fun and living in a good city.

“Clubs always get in touch. In the end, it is important for me that the overall picture fits. The city, the club, the concept.

“I am now 36 years old, so it is clear that I will not make the jump to an absolute top club again.”

Queen Elizabeth celebrates her 95th birthday with Trooping the Color parade

The Queen sure knows how to throw a birthday party.

On Saturday, the British Monarch watched in awe as the Trooping the Color celebration took place at Windsor Castle in honor of Her Majesty’s 95th birthday. The annual event was significantly smaller than in previous years due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions. However, the Queen beamed as she watched the parading soldiers in her honor.

One moment that particularly seemed to catch the Queen’s attention was when the Red Arrows, aka the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, flew overhead marking the sky red, white and blue.

Since this was the first Trooping the Color event since the passing of her husband, Prince Philip, the Queen asked a special someone to stand by her side for the festivities. This year it was Her Majesty’s cousin, the Duke of Kent, who joined her on the dais.

Trooping of the Color is a celebratory event that has taken place for over 260 years. Though the event was downscaled due to COVID-19, it is usually a grandiose event with over 1400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians, according to the royal family’s website.

While the Queen’s actual birthday is in April, the event takes place every June. It is meant to be a display of “military precision, horsemanship and fanfare” to mark Her Majesty’s birthday.

The Trooping of the Colors weekend marked the Queen’s second public appearance since Prince Philip died in April.

Prior to watching the parade at Windsor Castle, Her Majesty was joined by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, and the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker Bowles, at a charity lunch event on Friday. The Queen stole the show at the event when she insisted on cutting a large sheet cake with a ceremonial sword instead of a regular knife.
