Moenchengladbach: Werder Bremen’s Peruvian international Claudio Pizarro became the leading foreign striker in the Bundesliga when he netted his 134th goal in his team’s 4-1 win at Borussia Moenchengladbach on Saturday.

The 32-year-old, nicknamed ‘the Andean bomber’, surpassed the 133 goals scored by Brazilian Giovane Elber for Bayern Munich and VfB Stuttgart between 1994 and 2003.

Pizarro started his Bundesliga career in Bremen in 1999 and also played for Bayern and Chelsea before re-joining Werder in 2008.
