Bayern Munich have released a statement following their decision to sack Italian and former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti after the Bundesliga champions were trashed with a 3-0 in Champions League by Paris Saint-Germain.
Bayern are currently 3rd in their league with 13 points, 3 points behind Borussia Dortmund.
“The performances of the team since the season start did not correspond to the expectations, – said CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge – The Paris match showed clearly there needed to be consequences. Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic and myself informed Carlo today of our decision in an honest and serious discussion”.
“Carlo is a friend of mine and will remain so but we had to take a professional decision for Bayern Munich. I now expect from the team a positive development and absolute passion so that we reach our goals.”
Carlo Ancelotti won the Premier League and F.A. Cup with Chelsea in 2009/10 campaign.
