Ancelotti Comments On Bayern Sacking

Carlo Ancelotti Comments On Bayern Munich Sacking

By David Kappel - Oct 03, 2017 06:30 PM @kappilinho

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.

The old players had more power and they are finished. They did not want to accept that they cannot offer anything. Bayern needs a strong coach that can start rebuilding processs and sack so called experienced old players. Pep did that at City and you can see new ideas and more energy. Old players think that they can sit and use brains only to play. Football needs all aspects of it like pace,skill,endurance,not back stabbing. The older players felt like they are entitled to play. This is not only Bayern's problem but many teams suffered like this when you keep more of older players.

The main thing Bayern is interested in is the UCL, if any coach cannot excel in that then he is as good as gone
