Pizarro reveals why he did not sign for Real Madrid or Betis

Many clubs were interested in me. I met them in Lima and they took a role for me with five teams, and I couldn’t believe it. One of them was the Real Madrid, but in the end I decided on Bayern Munich because the offer was much better and I already knew the German league. At Real Madrid there were high-ranking players and I was going to play very little. “ Before that, he was able to land at Betis: “At that time Betis had a very good team with Denilson, but in the end I decided to come to Bremen. I always think it was a good decision, but it’s rare that I decided on Germany instead of going to Spain where I could speak Spanish. I think it was partly because my dad and my representative Carlos Delgado came here (Europe) and had a relationship with the leaders (from Bremen). They told me it was a serious club. The other club was not that serious. “ the Peruvian said about the club verdiblanco, then chaired by Manuel Ruiz de Lopera.Bomber Pizarro exhausts his professional days back at Werder Bremen, where this season he had barely played 13 official games without having scored a goal.
