Claudio Pizarro was very excited as he prepared to be subbed on during the game against FC Bayern at the Weserstadion. However, the ex-Bayern striker does not expect to be applauded if he comes on during the game in Munich, despite having a very illustrious time there. “It’s very nice to come back to Munich but I don’t think it’ll happen (get applauded). However, if I play, maybe it won’t be so nice,” said the Peruvian with a smile.
Before the two games against the record champions and record cup winners FC Bayern, Pizarro spoke to the media about the upcoming games and about the ‘difficult task’. The table toppers want to be the champions; Pizarro stressed, but also reminded us that Werder are in very good form. “Our team has confidence. Everyone can see how we are playing right now, how we work together and what we can do. I think they know it won’t be an easy game,” said the 40-year-old with a view on the Bundesliga game on Saturday. “Anything can happen.”
It doesn’t matter whether it is the cup game or in the league, Pizarro is hungry for success, even though it is against his old club. Werder could be an obstacle for Bayern in both competitions. Spoiling the title chances of Bayern Munich, "would not be easy," said former Bayern star Pizarro, "But, it would be a huge pleasure for me if we can do that. Bayern could still become champions.”
Pizarro expects two exciting game and they will be nice to watch for the fans. Until the game, he will put is friendships on hold, for example Thomas Müller. “I will try to focus on my own game. We can chat afterwards.” Hopefully the Pizarro will have the same grin on his face after the games.
