Carlo Ancelotti has left his job at Bayern Munich after a board meeting on Thursday afternoon, with the performance of the team and the side’s 3-0 thrashing at the feet of Paris Saint-Germain adding to the generally poor start to the season.
The previously dominant German champions currently lie in third in the Bundesliga, having recently drawn 2-2 with Wolfsburg and getting beaten 2-0 by Hoffenheim, and will now be managed by Ancelotti’s assistant coach Willy Sagnol on an interim basis.
A statement issued on Thursday afternoon by the Bavarian club read: “Following an internal analysis in Munich on Thursday 28 September 2017, FC Bayern München have announced the club is to part company with head coach Carlo Ancelotti with immediate effect.”
