Carlo Ancelotti sacked by Bayern Munich ahead of Celtic tie — Confirmed

Carlo Ancelotti sacked by Bayern Munich ahead of Celtic tie — Confirmed

A stuttering start to this season, coupled with signs of squad unrest, had led to suggestions that Ancelotti may have his contract (due to expire in 2019) cut short by a year.

It is not just Ancelotti's future that should be uncertain, according to Lahm, with the club's former captain open to changes at board level.

After Bayern Munich received a 3-0 hammering by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last night, manager Carlo Ancelotti has been sacked.

Beside Nagelsmann in the manager shortlist is Thomas Tuchel, 44, who guided a spirited Borussia Dortmund side to two wins over Ancelotti last season with precision tactics and an outspoken approach to man-management that would make the Italian blush.

The Dutchman was on the bench as Dani Alves, Edinson Cavani and Neymar struck in the French capital.

Ancelotti would then be dismissed by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich a year later after failing to successfully defend the league title. He was decisive in setting up Neymar's goal.

Carletto has previously admitted interest in the role, but stated that he sees it as an option for the end of his career.

The Italian gaffer came under heavy criticism for dropping Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and Mats Hummels out of the starting XI.

"The performance of the team since the start of the season did not meet the expectations we put to them", CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said as the news of his sacking was made official on Thursday. To present as Bayern Munich and to show we are a team, which performed well in the last years in Europa and in Germany. "I expect the team to ensure a positive development to achieve our goals this season", Rummenigge said.

"I think it's important to turn things around after this loss".

In his one full season as Bayern manager to date, Ancelotti won the Bundesliga by 15 points and also claimed the German Super Cup.

Ancelotti leaves Bayern having won 42 of his 60 games in charge at the Allianz Arena.

And that's not all that surprising when you consider the bigger picture.
