Reports: Bayern Stars Hated Ancelotti's Training Methods

It has been reported that several Bayern Munich stars disliked Carlo Ancelotti's training sessions when he was in charge of the German club.

'Five Players Turned On Ancelotti At Bayern'

The Italian manager was sacked last week following Bayern's 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League, and since his exit, there have been several surprising reports come out of Germany.

According to Kicker, many players at the club were unhappy with Ancelotti's sessions, with Arjen Robben reportedly feeling that they were no more intense than a kid's training session.

The Dutchman would apparently often criticise the Italian's methods, and is believed to have said they were less tough than his son's practice sessions with his youth team.

It has also been claimed that Ancelotti banned the players from doing individual work after a training session had ended, although some reportedly still did so behind his back.

Franck Ribery, a player believed to have fallen out with the former AC Milan and Real Madrid manager, used to reportedly phone club president Uli Hoeness every time he was substituted by Ancelotti.

Last week, it was said that five players – four of whom were suggested to be Robert Lewandowski, Robben, Ribery and Thomas Muller – were against the boss staying in charge of the club, while it has now been speculated that Jerome Boateng was the fifth star who wanted Ancelotti to leave the Allianz Arena.
