Golden oldie Pizarro out to spoil Bayern's double dreams

BERLIN, APRIL 22: Werder Bremen's Peruvian veteran Claudio Pizarro hopes to ruin Bayern Munich's dreams of a domestic double when he faces his old club in the German Cup semi-final this week.
Pizarro is an icon at both Bayern and Bremen, having scored over 100 goals for each club, and is chasing a record ninth appearance in the German Cup final when the two teams meet in Bremen on Wednesday.
In a Bundesliga career spanning two decades, the 40-year-old made over 300 appearances for Bayern and is in his fourth spell at Bremen.
Bayern recently offered him a job as club ambassador after his playing career, but with a place in the German Cup final at stake on Wednesday, there is no question where Pizarro's loyalties lie this week.
"If I come off the bench, it won't be easy for Bayern," said the ageing striker last week.     -AFP
