Pizarro continues career at Werder
Claudio Pizarro is returning to Werder Bremen. The 36-year-old Peruvian, whose contract with FC Bayern expired in June, signed a contract with Bremen until the end of the season after passing a medical. It will be Pizza's third spell with Bremen: he played there from 1999 to 2001 and from 2008 to 2012, scoring 89 goals. With 176 goals in 383 matches Pizarro is the most successful non-German scorer in Bundesliga history. FCB officially bid him farewell before the last home match against Bayer Leverkusen.
