Werder Bremen have signed veteran striker Claudio Pizarro for a third time.

The Peru international, 36, played for the Bundesliga club between 1999 and 2001 and, after moving to Bayern Munich and then Chelsea, he returned for a second spell between 2008 and 2012.

Pizarro then went back to Bayern but was released this summer and is now relishing a return to Bremen.
