He scored a ‘poker’ at the age of 34, so what’s next for Pizarro?
By Ross Dunbar
Saturday’s 9-2 victory over rivals Hamburg SV wasn’t enough to clinch the Bundesliga, as results elsewhere went against Bayern, but they did re-write the 50-year-old record books with the heaviest defeat enforced on the Dinosaur since a thrashing by the it wasame scoreline, ironically, against the blue-half of Munich in the first league campaign in 1963/64.
But the sheer assertiveness of Bayern’s victory certainly struck at the heart of the 10,000 travelling Hamburg supporters. The reward of a free barbeque mid-April ahead of their match with Fortuna Dusseldorf might not repair the mental damage, of fans, and players. Keeping an eye on a Champions League Quarter Final, Jupp Heynckes handed Claudio Pizarro the chance to grab the glory – and he made no mistake.
