The Peruvian played a friendly match with Werder Bremen for a while and then with Bayern as his farewell to professional football and in Germany where he shone for much of his career.
Peruvian striker Claudio Pizarro received this Saturday at the Weserstadion a heartfelt and emotional tribute from two of the clubs in his life, Werder Bremen and Bayern Munich, as well as from other veteran friends of the Bellavista gunner.
Before 40,500 spectators who filled the stands of the Bremen stadium, where he played for ten seasons in two stages, three teams, the local team, Bayern and ‘Claudio’s Amigos’, all made up of veteran players, met to offer a Nice farewell to a player who made history in German and European football.
Pizarro, who is 43 years old and who was accompanied by his loved ones, had the honor of opening the scoreboard in the first of the matches, which became a real party in which the former players delighted the public, which was completely overturned with the ‘bomber of the Andes’.
Pizarro is the top scorer in the history of Werder Bremen, the oldest striker in the Bundesliga and, with 197 goals, the second leading foreign scorer in the German tournament.
With Bayern, he won the Bundesliga six times, the Cup five times, the League Cup twice and the German Super Cup once, and with Werder Bremen he won a Cup and a Super Cup.
Likewise, he won a Champions League, an Intercontinental Cup, a European Super Cup and a Club World Cup with the Bavarian team.
