Claudio Pizarro hints at new Werder Bremen deal

Werder Bremen striker Claudio Pizarro has indicated that he plans to stay at the club for at least one more season.

Pizarro, 37, joined Bremen for the third time in his career in September when he signed a short-term contract until the end of the season.

He had warmed the bench at Bayern Munich in the 2014-15 campaign, making only 17 appearances and starting on just two occasions before the expiry of his contract last summer.

The Peru international has proved a big success upon his return to the Weserstadion after regaining his match fitness, scoring 13 goals to date, and has said he wants to play on until the 2018 World Cup.

Although Bremen are currently sitting in the relegation playoff spot, he is hopeful he will still be at the club next season.

"Yes, that's possible," he said. "We now have to take care that we stay up, and then we'll talk."

On whether things looked good for him and the Werder fans, he replied: "Yes."

Pizarro has scored more Bundesliga goals than any other non-German player, and with a total of 188 strikes for Bayern and Bremen, is the fifth top goal scorer in Bundesliga history.
