Bayern Munich star hoping for new contract

Published 1 Comments

Claudio Pizarro has publicly expressed his desires to extend his second stint with the Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich. 

Since returning to the Bavarian side in last summer’s transfer window, the Peruvian international has tallied six goals in 19 appearances this season. The Anden-Bomber has amassed 193 appearances in a Bayern uniform netting 77 goals in total.

The 34-year-old striker is reportedly looking forward to beginning talks with his club executives in regards to his expiring contract at the season’s end. 

As the former key player ages, he looks to play a role for the record Bundesliga champions.

“Of course I’d like to stay [at Bayern], even if it would be just for another year,” the super substitute told German magazine Kicker.

“This week we will start talking about my future.”

Bayern Munich and the rest of the city danced in the streets after their 3-0 victory at the Allianz Arena against FC Augsburg where they were presented with the Bundesliga shield, despite clinching the championship on 6 April with a record six match days remaining. 

Pizarro, who has previously won Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal tiles with the club in 2003, 2005 and 2006, has aspirations of the party not being his final one,

”I hope this wasn't my last championship celebration. I'd have liked to play more often, but in the end, how everything went is fine."

The German giants have a chance to win their first ever treble as the UEFA Champions League and DFB-Pokal finals will be played in the coming weeks.
