German giants Bayern Munich have sacked Carlo Ancelotti after just six 2017/18 Bundesliga games, and have named his interim replacement.

Reports earlier on Thursday suggested that the Bavarians would hold crisis talks following their 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League, and the German club has now announced Ancelotti's departure.

"The performance of our team since the start of the season did not meet the expectations we put to them," Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, CEO of Bayern Munich, said in an official statement on the club's website.

"The game in Paris clearly showed that we had to draw consequences. Hasan Salihamidzic and I gave Carlo an open and serious discussion today and informed him of our decision.

"I would like to thank Carlo for the co-operation and regret this development. Carlo is my friend and will remain, but we had to make a professional decision in the sense of FC Bayern. I now expect the team to have a positive development and absolute performance to achieve our goals for this season."

Ancelotti's coaching team – Davide Ancelotti, Giovanni Mauri, Francesco Mauri and Mino Fulco – were also freed of their duties, while assistant manager Willy Sagnol will take over the management of the team until further notice.

Bayern currently sit in third spot in the Bundesliga, having drawn one and lost one of their first six league games of the campaign.

Carlo remains one of the best. It's not like Bayern were defeated by an under strength team. PSG is very strong this season than ever
