The Bavarians suffered their biggest Champions League group-stage defeat in 21 years last night, as they were stunned by a rampant PSG side. Dani Alves, Edinson Cavani and Neymar put their names on the scoresheet in the scintillating win at Parc des Princes.
And as a result of the loss, Ancelotti has now been shockingly axed by the German club.
The statement from the club read: Following an internal analysis in Munich on Thursday 28 September 2017, FC Bayern München have announced the club is to part company with head coach Carlo Ancelotti with immediate effect.
As of now, Bayern’s assistant coach Willy Sagnol is promoted to take charge of the German giants, while some reports have come in suggesting that former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel could also be approached for the job.
After having won the German title in his first year in-charge at the Allianz Arena, the former Real Madrid manager has been off to a relatively poor start considering the quality of his squad. Bayern currently sit third in the Bundesliga table, after having lost and drawn one game each.
The German club had reached the quarterfinal stage of last year’s UEFA Champions League, before they were thumped by eventual winners Real Madrid.
