Cologne and Peru striker Claudio Pizarro lands Disney movie role

Restricted to just four appearances for Cologne this season, veteran striker Claudio Pizarro has apparently found a part-time job to keep himself amused.

The 39-year-old Peru international has landed a supporting voiceover role in the German-language version of Disney's latest animated offering, "Coco."

The movie tells the story of a young Mexican boy who gets draw into the netherworld during his country's Day of the Dead celebrations.

Pizarro plays the role of a skeleton who wants to watch a football match.

"I love the Jungle Book and I'm delighted that Disney asked me to play a role in Coco," Pizarro told stimme.de. "What I like about the film is that it's very funny, but also very emotional. In particular, the skeletons in the land of the dead are really funny."

Sounds a lot more enjoyable than playing for Cologne this season.
