Pizarro recommended Chelsea to Marin

Published Add your comment

Recent signing Marko Marin has revealed former Chelsea striker Claudio Pizarro helped persuade him to join the club.

The Blues announced in April they had agreed a deal to sign the 23-year-old from Werder Bremen for an undisclosed fee. Marin spent three seasons with the Bundesliga side, where he was team-mates with Pizarro. The Peruvian endured a frustrating spell with the Blues between 2007 and 2009, but was quick to recommend the club to Marin.

"He [Pizarro] only had good things to say," Marin told Chelsea TV. "I asked him how it is here and he still has a house in Cobham."
