Bayern Munich Sack Manager Carlo Ancelotti

  • Nagelsmann Do not include me in Bayern speculation

Less than 24 hours after a humiliating 3-0 defeat by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, Carlo Ancelotti has left his role as coach of Bayern Munich, the German club confirmed in a tweet.

The former Chelsea and AC Milan boss had been in charge at the Allianz Arena for almost 15 months after taking over as Pep Guardiola's successor in July 2016.

Pressure had already been building on Ancelotti, 58, with Bayern enduring an inconsistent start to the season before losing 3-0 to PSG in the French capital Wednesday.

Bayern assistant coach Willy Sagnol will take over from Ancelotti as interim coach, while former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel has also been mentioned along with Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann also linked.


When CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge warned there would be serious consequences, stating "What we've seen tonight was not Bayern Munich", it was clear that the Italian would be facing the chop. I think he lost the respect of his players.

He added, "Carlos is my friend and that will continue, but we had to take a professional decision for FC Bayern".

While Rummenigge did not say which consequences Bayern need to draw from the defeat, Ancelotti could face a stormy couple of days after benching star players like Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery or Mats Hummels. I know I will get criticism, that's fine. "I now expect the team to have a positive development and top performance, so we can reach our goals for this season". "Hasan Salihamidzic (the club's sporting director) and I met Carlo today for full and frank discussions where we informed him of our decision". Then there is nothing to misunderstand or to interpret wrong. To present as Bayern Munich and to show we are a team, which performed well in the last years in Europa and in Germany.
