Fired-up Pizarro wants to ‘win it all’

As a Bayern player, Claudio Pizarro has already won the Intercontinental Cup, the Bundesliga three times, and the DFB Cup three times. He has 71 goals to his name in 174 league matches for FCB – and five years after leaving Munich for the first time, he is desperate for more. “Win everything. Everything there is. That's the target," he said on Wednesday.

The Peru striker is unable to play a full part in the early training sessions of pre-season, as he is still busy shaking off an injury collected while playing for Bremen at the end of last term. He is pursuing an individual sports rehab programme, and in fact cut short his summer vacation in order to report to the FCB medical unit almost two weeks ahead of the official restart date. “Unfortunately, I've not made it in time. Maybe in 10 days," he reported when asked about a return to the full training burden, “Fortunately, pre-season is long this year."
