Bayern Munich Sack Carlo Ancelotti After PSG Humiliation

Bayern Munich fires head coach Carlo Ancelotti

Bayern Munich on Thursday sacked Carlo Ancelotti after a poor league run culminated in a 3-0 Champions League loss to PSG Wednesday night.

Bayern Munich want to find a successor to sacked coach Carlo Ancelotti within the next two weeks, club president Uli Hoeness said on Friday.

But European success eluded the man dubbed Charlemagne on his arrival, who had won a slew of trophies with AC Milan, Chelsea and Real Madrid among other teams.

Bayern are now third in the Bundesliga, three points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund.

Ancelotti had been in charge at Bayern since the summer of 2016.

The Italian had come under pressure in the early stages of the new campaign after a 2-0 defeat to Hoffenheim in September.

The German giants chose to act after a 3-0 humbling by PSG on Wednesday evening in the Champions League.

"The coach didn't manage to let the team play good football. The game in Paris clearly showed that we had to draw consequences".

The Bayern Munich hierarchy are set to hold a meeting to discuss Carlo Ancelotti's future on Thursday afternoon, according to Sky sources.

Following the defeat, CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insisted that the performance was "not Bayern Munich" before adding that there was an immediate need for the club to discuss it.

During his tenure at Dortmund Tuchel saw Matt Hummels make the switch to Bayern, while in previous years Robert Lewandowski and Mario Gotze have fled Dortmund for their rivals, but now could Tuchel be lured over to Munich.

"If I take a look to the right or left, then there is nothing to misunderstand or to interpret wrong".

"I'm someone who thinks a lot about the lineup. I now expect a positive improvement from the team and a total willingness to perform so that we can reach our objectives for this season". "That's where we have to continue".
