Werder Bremen's Claudio Pizarro: A season to much

there is Still a Chance for a Happy ending in a relegation battle. And is the perfect Bremen final image, would it look something like this: Claudio Pizarro, the eternal Werder-favorite, and perhaps the greatest Almost-world-star, the League's ever had, once again creates a Moment for eternity. A last service to his club and a personal final, that would certainly be considered outside of the city of Bremen with a bow.

Just: as romantic As this story sounds, the bears completely on the edge of the Pointe, that Pizarro, on this Saturday (15.30 clock would meet in the F. A. Z.-Liveticker for the football Bundesliga and Sky) against his previous club, the 1. FC Cologne (which is already almost forgotten) – in Bremen there are in these bleak days, anyone who tells you seriously. The Pizarro-the Moment, he seems to be as far away as Bremen's season goal of a place in the European Cup. Seventeen inserts, zero goals, zero Assists – this is Pizarro's eerie balance in this Bremen's horror season, and when you look back on the past months, then the probability that this will change something is to become rather smaller than larger.

What has this to do with Pizarro himself. You have to say it so clearly: This is the last season that he expected his now 41-year-old body, was the famous too much. It was almost sad to see all of what was on display last season to this unpredictable factor in the Bremen game, an emotional Turbo-Boost, the Werder, and his Fans inspired, fully evaporate. But that has to do not only with Pizarro himself, but also with the Bremen game.

The Werder-exists attack this season, only on paper. There, he reads not so bad: Rashica, Füllkrug, Selke, and Pizarro. Only On the site, and virtually nothing was seen of it. Sure, Füllkrug was injured early, but a game idea that reaches the target, was not able to develop, coach Kohfeldt. Werder's way to the famous last third, you had to imagine yourself as a Boxer with short arms in search of the Punch. What that meant for players like Pizarro, but also Selke, that they had to happen as it is in football of a quarantine: involuntarily sequestered.

This structural imbalance could be Werder's undoing. What would be a particularly bitter punch line, as the special is Something in the storm is actually a Bremen trademark, a unifying Moment in the club's history through the ages. However, where on Saturday, the four goals should come from the Werder for the jump to the relegation rank (at least) needed, if Union Berlin and Fortuna Düsseldorf play draw – it remains in spite of a 5:1 in Paderborn is a mystery, especially since Rashica threatens to fail.
