Bayern München CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says Claudio Pizarro has been offered to take a job at the Bavarian club when he ends his career.

The 40-year-old, who played for Bayern from 2001 to 2007 and from 2012 to 2015, is currently playing for Werder Bremen.

It's uncertain how long the veteran striker will keep playing, but when he eventually decides to hang up his boots, Bayern are ready to welcome him back.

"We have agreed with Claudio that when he really does end his career, whenever that will be, he can return to Munich and take on an ambassador role with us," Rummenigge told Mein Werder and added:

"To my knowledge, he still has a house here in Munich, and his family have always felt well here."

Pizarro's current deal with Werder is due to run out at the end of the season.
