Carlo Ancelotti Comments On Bayern Munich Sacking
After Bayern Munich's controversial sacking of Carlo Ancelotti made the headlines last week, the Italian has now commented on his dismissal for the first time.
Click through the mini-gallery above to see which five players are said to have turned against Ancelotti.
Ancelotti was fired by the German giants following their disappointing 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League last week.
Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness later revealed that five players had turned against the coach, which is why the club decided to act.
"They've all been talking. They said I'm too soft, that my pre-season was wrong," Ancelotti told Gazetta dello Sport when asked about his sacking.
"They can say what they want. I follow an Italian writer, for whom silence is a virtue. So keep silent and think."
Ancelotti has been linked with a return to AC Milan, the club he guided to two UEFA Champions League titles, but the 58-year-old has insisted he will take a break until the end of the season.
"They can all stay calm," he added.
"I'll rest a bit and have some fun, and at the end of the season we'll see."
The Italian has won an impressive 20 trophies during his career so far, three of which came during his 14 months at the helm of Bayern.
