Claudio Pizarro – nicknamed EL Bombardero de los Andes – has renewed his contract for another year with FC Bayern, till 30 June 2015. “I’m very proud to play for FC Bayern again next year,” said Pizarro. “For me, there’s no better club in the world.”
With 176 goals all-told, the Peruvian Pizarro (Lima, 1978) is the highest-scoring foreign player in the history of the Bundesliga.
Another season like 2013/14 could even see him break into the top five, moving ahead of Ulf Kirsten (182), according to the website of the Bundesliga.
“Claudio has shown once more this season how how important he is for the team and how dangerous he is, in front of the goal,” said Bayern’s chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. “We’re very happy that we can continue to count on PIzarro and his
performances.” Pizarro has won the Bundesliga five times with Bayern and picked up a UEFA Champions League winner’s medal in 2013.
The 35-year-old Peruvian footballer joined Bayern for the second time in 2012. This impressive scoring ratio of one goal every 68 minutes last term was more than enough to convince the record champions to keep him on the books for another season.
