“For me, it would be perfect if Erling Haaland goes to Bayern. But if you think about Robert leaving Bayern, I have been hearing that for the last 5-6 years.

He would be going to a team where he can win some titles in his career,” remarked Pizarro whereas answering a question posed by the Hindustan Times throughout a select-media interplay organized by Sony Sports.
-German national team goes by means of a transitional phase-
The 2022 FIFA World Cup is a little over a year away and the German national aspect would look to finish its title drought on the flat, low-lying deserts of Qatar. Germany, since profitable the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, hasn’t been ready to ship in addition to they would have favored to. The aspect reached the semifinals of the 2016 European Championship, crashed out of the 2018 World Cup in the group stage, and most lately, noticed the exit door in the Round of 16 at Euro 2020.
Moreover, they now have a new coach in Hansi Flick, who changed Joachim Löw on the helm after his 15-year-long stint. When requested why ‘Die Mannschaft’ has not been ready to stay up to the expectations, former Peruvian striker Pizarro said that the team is currently going by means of a transition section on all ends and can click on in due time.
“The German team is going through a transition at the moment, not just with the new coach (Hansi) but also with the change of generations. Almost all the players from the team that last won the World Cup in 2014 are not there anymore. You have a new generation (of players) coming in.
“I think they need some time to get to know each other really well and adapt to the new situation and to perform. That’s all they need to show their quality. Some of the German players are very good and we have no doubts about it. They need time to be together, to work together, to train together and after that, we will see them at the top again,” defined Pizarro, who scored 87 objectives for the Munich-based outfit in 224 video games.
-Really unhappy, they belong to the Bundesliga-
Werder Bremen, Hamburg, and Schalke are three German golf equipment which have been synonymous with top-flight soccer in Germany. However, these groups had been relegated to the second division final season and 42-year-old Pizarro was left in utter disbelief and hoped that they appropriate the issues that went flawed final year and work their approach again to the primary division.
“Firstly, it is really sad to see teams like Werder Bremen, Hamburg, and Schalke are playing the second league. They are teams that belong to the Bundesliga. Every time something bad happens, or things don’t work according to your expectations, of course, there are bad decisions and bad management involved. When things like this happen, there is always something that was wrong the year before. So, you have to change those things to make it work again. My hope is that they come back to the Bundesliga,” Pizarro concluded.
