Pizarro has spent almost his entire career in the Bundesliga, where he has starred for Werder Breman and Bayern Munich on route to six league titles, five DFB-Pokals and the Champions League.

The Peruvian striker is the Bundesliga’s sixth-highest all-time scorer with 197 goals in 472 matches, along with an adding 76 assists in the process.

And, even at 41, Pizarro is still playing for Werder this season.

So it’ll come as no surprise to many fans that Pizarro is the oldest hat-trick scorer in Bundesliga history at 37 years and 151 days.

Sadly, he plans to finally hang up his boots in May.
