Claudio Pizarro (born October 3, 1978 in Lima) is a Peruvian football (soccer) striker, who currently plays for Bayern Munich.

Prior to joining Bayern, Pizarro was with Deportivo Pesquero Chimbote (1996-97), Alianza Lima (1997-99), and Werder Bremen (1999-01). He was a key player in Bayern's Bundesliga and German Cup double in 2003. Pizza, as he is known, is a regular for the Peruvian national team.

In a match versus Arsenal on February 22, 2005 Pizarro scored two magnificent goals in Bayern Munich's 3-1 victory in the first leg of the Round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League.

The form and scoring of Pizarro in the Werder Bremen were not only observed by the German and Peruvians fans. Managers of the main European clubs had put their eyes on the new star of Peruvian soccer. After the Bundesliga 2000-2001, the conflict to secure the Inca scorer's services became very tight. The media indicated that Real Madrid and FC Barcelona of Spain, the Internazionale of Italy and also German clubs such as Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund were the main ones interested in registering Pizarro. Weeks passed, and the most speculated transfer in Peruvian soccer monopolized the interest of the national and international press.

The end of May 2001 came, and journalists pointed to Spain as the almost definite destination for "the Bomber of Los Andes". It was then that Bayern Munich, which weeks before had won the European Champions League, decided to do their best efforts to get the Peruvian star. The efforts of the German club were successful, and finally Pizarro, after a long conversation with their representatives, finally opted for Bayern. On June 7 of 2001, Claudio Pizarro officially registered for Bayern Munich, ending weeks of speculation.

From the first day he joined his new club, the forward had the unconditional support of their main authorities (headed by the president Franz Beckenbauer ), of the technical staff and also of his teammates who received him cordially. Claudio carried out his training with Bayern Munich without failure, so that he could assist Bayern's competing in six different tournaments in next months and to defend the titles of the Champions League / the Bundesliga. His premiere could not be more auspicious, since he scored his first goal with the Bavarian team in the fourth minute of the game against Schalke (the second date of the Bundesliga 2001-2002). The "Bomber", or sometimes called "Inca God" by the media, has begun on a good foot with Bayern Munich and the projection of his career in the short and medium term continues to be very optimistic.
