Berlin: Veteran Peru striker Claudio Pizarro signed a one-year extension with European champions Bayern Munich on Thursday as the Bavarian giants headed off to their pre-season training camp.

The 34-year-old, the only member of the Bayern squad who was without a contract, has extended until June 2014 as back-up to first-choice striker Mario Mandzukic of Croatia and want-away Germany star Mario Gomez.

"I'm 34 - there's nothing better that can happen to me than to sign a contract with Bayern Munich, I am convinced we will have a good year together," said Pizarro.
