FC Bayern have appointed Claudio Pizarro as a club ambassador. In his new role, the long-standing FCB striker and fan favourite will help to promote FC Bayern’s name, traditions and values throughout the world. In addition to the 41-year-old Peruvian, Giovane Elber, Lothar Matthäus and Bixente Lizarazu already serve as ambassadors for the club. Pizarro will also become a permanent member of the FC Bayern Legends squad.
Andreas Jung, board member responsible for marketing, “We are delighted to have secured Claudio Pizarro as an ambassador for FC Bayern. As a player, Claudio was a darling amongst the public and garners enormous respect among our fans. His South American soul has been spiced with a pinch of Bavarian through his many years in Munich, and all this, in addition to his great success as a player, makes him a perfect representative for FC Bayern.”
Claudio Pizarro said, “I am very happy to return to FC Bayern as a club ambassador. It is a dream to be back in Munich. FC Bayern is always described as a family, and that’s exactly how it feels. Now, in my new role, I will once more give everything for this club – just like I used to as a player.”
