Bayern Munich Sack Carlo Ancelotti After PSG Humiliation

Potential full-time candidates for the Bayern job include Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann, who handed Ancelotti a 2-0 defeat earlier this season, or current assistant manager Willy Sagnol, a former French global who played for the Munich club.

"I think what we saw tonight was not Bayern Munich".

Ancelotti was sacked by Bayern on Thursday after a disappointing run of results that culminated in a 3-0 Champions League thrashing against Paris Saint-Germain.

Bayern, third in the Bundesliga after six matches, have been mainly unconvincing this season which is the second on Ancelotti's three-year contract, which ran until 2019. "The Paris match showed clearly we had to take action".

"I would like to thank Carlo for our work together and regret the development it has taken", Rummenigge said.

However, he failed to achieve the primary goal that he had been entrusted with; leading Bayern Munich to their first Champions League title since 2013.

Wednesday's 3-0 loss at Paris Saint-Germain led club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge to warn of "consequences" after what he called a "very bitter defeat". I think it's important to turn things around after this loss, to present as Bayern Munich and to show we are a team, [the one] which performed well in Europe and in Germany past year.

One man that has been hotly linked with a move in the immediate aftermath of Ancelotti's axing is Thomas Tuchel, the former Borussia Dortmund boss who left Bayern's rivals in the summer following a spat with the owners.

The Italian tactician will be temporarily replaced by his assistant Willy Sagnol but the former Frances star is not going to remain in charge of the Bavarians for long.

The 58-year-old Ancelotti has also coached Real Madrid, Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea and - ironically - PSG, but Bayern's biggest Champions League group-stage defeat in 21 years ultimately spelled the end for him.
