Cologne striker Lukas Podolski will miss his side's resumption after the winter break as he gets over a foot injury which will keep him out of the January 21 visit to Wolfsburg, Kicker reported him as saying on Thursday.
"The target is to be back to face Schalke," the following week, revealed Podolski, Cologne's top scorer with 14 goals.
"I have to be careful as it is my left foot which I do everything with. And I can't help the team if I am not 100 percent."
Podolski, 26, had injured his ankle in a summer accident playing with friends and then injured the same foot while at Cologne's winter training camp in Portugal.
