Carlo Ancelotti’s sacking came as a surprise to some, but Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has admitted that the Italian would never have made it at the club, as he had lost the support of his dressing room.
In a shocking revelation, Hoeness claimed that five players had turned on Ancelotti during his final days at the club, and this is said to have been a big factor in the board deciding to sack him.
“There were five players against Ancelotti,” Hoeness told Westfalenpost.
“It was impossible to get out of that.”
Bayern’s chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge released a statement following the departure of the former Real Madrid boss, saying that his team was not meeting the targets that had been set at the start of the season.
“The performance of the team since the start of the season did not meet the expectations we put to them,” said Rummenigge. The game in Paris clearly showed that there had to be consequences. Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic and I gave Carlo an open and serious talk today and informed him of our decision.
“I would like to thank Carlo for his cooperation and regret this development. Carlo is my friend and will remain so, but we had to make a professional decision based on Bayern’s interests. I now expect the team to have a positive development and absolute determination, so we can reach our goals for this season.”
