The names of the five players have not been revealed, but reports claim some players were not happy with Ancelotti's training methods.

Bayern have since brought Jupp Heynckes back to the club for the rest of the season, following the Italian's departure.

“Bayern Munich is part of the past as far as I’m concerned, I’m still tranquil and calm,” Ancelotti was quoted as saying by Football Italia.

“Being sacked is part of a Coach’s work, and it’s no shame on me. In 22 years I’ve always had good relations with all the players I’ve coached, because I respected all of them.

“That’s how I conducted myself at Bayern too.

“Were the players against me? I don’t know. I respected all of them, but as a Coach I have to make a choice to send 11 onto the pitch and seven to the bench.

“It’s down to the intelligence of the players to accept the choices, and to the club to support their Coach."
