Carlo Ancelotti sacked by Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich's Italian head coach Carlo Ancelotti gestures during the UEFA Champions League football match between Paris Saint Germain and Bayern Munich

Bayern lost to Hoffenheim in the third round of the league and let a two-goal lead slip in a 2-2 draw with Wolfsburg last Friday.

Three-time Champions League-winning coach Ancelotti was hired to replace Pep Guardiola as Bayern sought greater rewards in Europe than the three semi-final appearances made under the Catalan.

"Our team's performances since the start of the season have not met our expectations", Rummenigge said in a club statement.

But they were eliminated by eventual winners Real Madrid in extra-time of a thrilling quarter-final and their hopes of a domestic double were ended in the German Cup semi-finals by Dortmund.

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.

Like Ancelotti, Luis Enrique has won the Champions League recently having guided Barcelona to a treble in 2015 with a team spearheaded by the fearsome trident of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

Which Premier League striker has had the best start to the 2017-18 season?

With Sagnol at the helm, Bayern next faces a trip to Pal Dardai's well-organized Hertha Berlin side in the Bundesliga on Sunday.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti has been sacked by Bayern München, just five months after leading them to a fifth consecutive Bundesliga title. "[Bayern sporting director] Hasan Salihamidzic and I had an open and serious discussion with Carlo today and informed him of our decision". "Assistant coach Willy Sagnol will take charge of the team on an interim basis". "Every word would be too much".

Rummenigge had called for "consequences" at the traditional banquet after the Paris game.

What was meant to be a duel of ideologies between two top-class football clubs ended up in a disaster for Bayern Munich and their head coach Carlo Ancelotti.

The pressure has been building on Ancelotti since the pre-season, when Bayern looked a long way short of their usual standards in losses to Inter Milan, AC Milan and Liverpool.

Here, we assess the low points of Ancelotti's tenure in Opta numbers.

Happiness evidently was not abounding and Ancelotti's lack of communication also contributed to his downfall, as Die Welt's Julien Wolff explained.

In midfield, Ancelotti started with the three central midfielders Thiago, Arturo Vidal and Tolisso.
