Bayern Munich sack boss Carlo Ancelottiby Jack Kitson / 28 September 2017, 14:54Tweet
Carlo Ancelotti has left his position at Bayern Munich following a 3-0 defeat to PSG in the Champions League.
The defeat, Bayern’s biggest European group stage loss in 21 years, proved to be costly for Ancelotti who leaves his post after 15 months at the helm.
The likes of Hoffenheim boss Julian Nagelsmann (who is only 30), former Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel, and Bayern’s assistant Willy Sagnol are being hotly linked with the vacancy, however we are unable to confirm reports that the ex Wolfsburg gaffer Steve McClaren is among the frontrunners to take charge of the German giants...
In his only full season in charge of Bayern Ancelotti led the club to the Bundesliga title, while he also won back-to-back German Super Cups, however the club lost out to eventual winners Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals.
By Bayern’s exceptionally high standards they’ve endured a slow start to the new league season, with the club third in the league behind leaders Dortmund and Hoffenheim on 12 points from six games.
Ancelotti’s departure after 60 games is the second shortest tenure of his career after his first spell in the dugout with Italian side Reggiana, where he took charge of 41 matches before leaving for Parma.
