He is a centre midfielder, who can operate in a holding position or an attacking position in the hole behind the strikers.

During Pizarro's stay in Italian football, he won one Serie A title (2005–06), three Coppa Italia titles and two Supercoppa Italiana titles. His Italian nickname is "Pek", diminutive of "pequeño", meaning "small" in Spanish, because of his short height (1.68 meters).
He plays for the Chile national team, for which he won the Bronze medal at 2000 Summer Olympics, and played at two Copa América. He made his full debut in 1999, playing at that year's Copa América, and was part of the Chilean squad which won its first ever tournament in 2015.
