Peru's Pizarro, Bundesliga matchday's top player

Peruvian striker Claudio Pizarro was chosen Bundesliga matchday 24's top star.

According to the German league's Spanish version site, the Werder Bremen forward received this recognition after having scored one goal in last Friday's game against Bayer 04 Leverkusen (1-1). 

The Andean bomber became Bundesliga's Player of the Week with 41% of the votes, thus beating Douglas Costa (FC Bayern Munich, 33%); Mario Gomez (VfL Wolfsburg, 21%); and Dario Lezcano (FC Ingolstadt 04; 5%). 

It must be noted the 38-year-old has received the honorable mention for second consecutive week and third time in the 2016/2017 season.

Likewise, Pizarro posted another record by becoming the Bundesliga's fourth athlete to have played 200 or more matches defending teams: Bayern Munich and Werder Bremen.
