Vissel Kobe striker Lukas Podolski, who is back in Germany treating a left thigh injury, will not take part in this weekend’s Emperor’s Cup semifinals, the team’s development director Kentaro Aita said Wednesday.

According to Aita, the former star of Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Inter Milan, who made his league debut with Vissel in late July, returned to Germany on Dec. 5 and was diagnosed with an adductor muscle strain needing three weeks of rest.
