Pizarro: Bayern want to win everything

ESPN staff

New Bayern Munich signing Claudio Pizarro has said he and his team-mates are aiming to win "everything" after two trophyless seasons for the Bavarians.

Pizarro, 33 - in his second spell at Bayern - vowed to help make up for the disappointment of last season, which saw Bayern finish as runners-up in the Bundesliga and lose the Champions League final to Chelsea on penalties.

The Peruvian became used to winning trophies during his first spell at the club, claiming three league and cup doubles and the FIFA Club World Cup.

"I want to win everything - everything that there is. That is the aim," he told Bayern's official website. "I have always said that Bayern is the best club I have ever been at."

And he said he was not afraid of the fierce competition for places up front at Bayern, where he is competing with strikers including Euro 2012 joint top scorers Mario Gomez and Mario Mandzukic.

"Competition for places is normal," he added. "You have that at every club. Back then [his first spell in 2001], there were five strikers, so it was much more difficult."
