Today, ESPNSoccernet published an interview with German soccer star and newest member of Arsenal, Lukas Podolski.
Except for one little thing. Its completely made up.
Podolski took to his Facebook page to tell his followers that the whole thing is made up, posting, "Hey guys, on the ESPN website there is an interview published I never gave. It contains parts, which are completely made up. Please ignore it! Cheers, Poldi"
The "interview" was placed prominently on the front page of ESPNsoccernet about an hour after Podolski's Facebook post.
Officials at ESPN have pulled the article off its site, but has yet to make an official statement regarding the allegations Podolski has claimed.
