Bayern Munich’s confirmed that the club has parted ways with Carlo Ancelotti following their 3-0 defeat to PSG in the Champions League.
The Bavarian club already find themselves three points behind league rivals Borussia Dortmund, while it’s fair to say that they’ve struggled at time this season.
Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed the news on Thursday afternoon.
“Our team’s performances since the start of the season have not met our expectations. The match in Paris clearly showed we had to take immediate action. Hasan Salihamidžić and I met Carlo today for full and frank discussions where we informed him of our decision,” commented FC Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. “I’d like to thank Carlo for his time working with us and I’m sorry about the way it has developed. Carlo is my friend and he will remain so, but we had to take a professional decision in the interests of FC Bayern. I expect the team to produce a positive response and show absolute determination to achieve our targets for the season.”
Willy Sagnol has been appointed as interim head coach.
