Exactly 16 years ago, on 7 June 2001, Claudio Pizarro was unveiled at the Säbener Strasse, looking at his new shirt with some doubt at first. Today the Bayern fans know the FCB kit suited *Pizza*very well!

In 19,984 competitive minutes wearing Bayern colours, the Peruvian scored 125 goals and set up another 53. Boasting a total of 191 league goals, Pizarro is the most successful non-German scorer in Bundesliga history, lying fifth in the all-time rankings.

It remains to be seen if he will score further goals in the German top tier, but one thing is certain: the Schlawiner, as he once called himself, something between a smooth operator and a cheeky rascal, is part of FC Bayern's history.
