Carlo Ancelotti fired by Bayern Munich

The 58-year-old has been relieved of his duties after just one full season in charge of the German side as a result of their defeat in France
 
Bayern Munich have fired Carlo Ancelotti in the wake of Wednesday’s defeat to Paris Saint-Germain and replaced him with Willy Sagnol as interim coach.
Ancelotti had won the Bundesliga title in his first campaign in Germany, but results and performances have tailed off – amid reports former club AC Milan are interested in the Italian – and the Bayern board acted on Thursday.

Bayern are third in the league and second in their Champions League group, with dismal defeats to Hoffenheim and PSG exacerbated by further poor displays and apparent problems behind the scenes.

Ancelotti’s assistant and former Bayern defender Willy Sagnol will take charge in the interim, though Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann has been long touted as a target by Allianz Arena chiefs.

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said in a statement: “The performance of our team since the start of the season did not meet the expectations we put to them.

The German champions were humbled 3-0 in their Champions League clash in Paris, and the Italian coach came under criticism for leaving Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and Mats Hummels out of the starting XI…
