Bayern Munich sack coach Carlo Ancelotti after PSG loss: Reports

Chelsea bump in to exes and FC Hollywood grips Paris: Uefa Champions League talking points

"The performances of our team since the start of the season had not met our expectations".

Bayern travel to Hertha Berlin in the league on Sunday (2.30pm UK time). Because the PSG, shining against and worn by opening the score as early as the 2nd minute of the game, has also suffered.

There were hints in pre-season that all was not well.

"I am going to have criticism for this but it is no problem".

Bayern were swept aside by French giants PSG, who recorded a comprehensive 3-0 Group B victory thanks to expensively-assembled attacking trio Edinson Cavani, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe on Wednesday. They are unbeaten through six games in the Bundesliga and a point ahead of Bayern.

The Atletico Madrid-Chelsea match will be a battle of two well-organized teams looking to capitalize on the slightest miscue from their opponents. And they're not quite a team, either. The DFB-Pokal he left with in May was the only trophy Dortmund won during his tenure.

The Bavarians have also announced that club legend Willy Sagnol will take charge of the club on an interim basis. "I'm so excited... sometimes I look for it on the internet and put it on for my friends".

The 58-year-old Italian coach took the reins from Pep Guardiola in the season 2016-2017 and clinched only the Bundesliga title ever since.

For that, Ancelotti avoids his share of the blame.

"Bayern will have to come up with something and be creative if the club wants to keep bringing world-class players to Munich".

But the chastening loss, coupled with Bayern's stuttering start to the domestic campaign, proved to be the final straw for a reportedly furious Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, the club's executive chairman. The Germany defender watched from the stands despite no notice given of any injury.

So while the sacking looked to be the result of the PSG game, in fact, the result was seemingly used as the ideal time to cut ties. There is no other message to find in this beautiful evening of Wednesday. Whereas, the club seems to have regressed under Ancelotti. He left Milan on great terms and their fans would love to see him on the bench again.

Alessandro Alciato, who collaborated with Ancelotti on his autobiography, told Sky in Italy: "Clearly the locker room was divided. They had got to a dead end".

If Bayern do make an approach, Liverpool bosses are likely to make it as difficult as possible. They have one of the best squads in Europe, headlined by stars like Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Müller, Manuel Neuer, Jerome Boateng, David Alaba, Arturo Vidal, Franck Ribery, and Arjen Robben. Even the signing of Ancelotti's dream player, James Rodriguez, has made little or no difference to their fortunes thus far.
