Carlo Ancelotti: Bayern Munich can’t always play beautiful football

Bayern Munich boss Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that the club can’t always football that is pleasing to the eye after the defending champions’ unconvincing victory against FC Ingolstadt.

Bayern fell in  behind in the game to an eighth minute goal from Ingolstadt forward Dario Lezcano, and while Robert Lewandowski equalized soon for the Bavarians, they were made to work hard to clinch all three points.

“We are playing a lot of games, with a lot of new players returning from injury, who are maybe not yet in top condition.” Ancelotti told a press conference.

“We were missing a lot of players but we have a good squad. After conceding an early goal the game was difficult.

“We had problems at the back and it wasn’tan easy game. We were able to equalise early and we played well in the second half and wrapped up the points with Rafinha’s goal.

“It was very difficult for us. Sometimes it’s impossible to play beautifully. You have to display other qualities then. The team did just that.”
