Carlo Ancelotti has been sacked as manager of Bayern Munich following the club’s Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.
This announcement was made by the club on Thursday.
Ancelotti, who replaced Pep Guardiola at the start of last season saw his team start off the season inconsistently.
According to AFP, after the 3-0 loss, 58-year-old Ancelotti was questioned by German media about “tactics” and “team selection”. This relates to his decision to leave star players Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben and Mats Hummels on the bench at kick-off.
It has been reported that former player, Willy Sagnol will take temporary charge of the coaching role.
Bayern's chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said: "The performance of our team since the start of the season did not meet the expectations we put to them.
"I would like to thank Carlo for his cooperation. Carlo is my friend and will remain my friend, but we had to make a professional decision. The game in Paris clearly showed that we had to draw consequences."
