Bayern Munich will offer veteran striker Claudio Pizarro a role as club ambassador once the evergreen 40-year-old Peruvian finally ends his playing career, club CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said Wednesday
A well-loved figure at both clubs, he is currently on his fourth spell at Bremen, and is expected to end his playing career either this summer or at the end of next season.
Pizarro is the second highest scoring foreigner in Bundesliga history with 195 goals in 468 league appearances - only Bayern's Robert Lewandowski, currently on 201 goals, has scored more in Germany's top flight.
"We have agreed with Claudio that he can come back and take on a role as a club ambassador when he actually does stop playing," said Rummenigge.
"As far as I know, he still has a house in Munich and his family always felt very at home here." Several former Bayern players, including Bixente Lizarazu and Giovane Elber, are active as official Bayern ambassadors, a role which involves representing the club and the brand at publicity events across the world.
"It would be an amazing feeling for me to win these games, though I would feel Bayern's pain a bit," said Pizarro this week.
