Bayern Munich have reportedly sacked manager Carlo Ancelotti after the German champions were beaten 3-0 by Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday. According to ESPN FC, Bayern officials met with Ancelotti on Thursday and the news will be made official in a press conference later in the day, with assistant and former Bayern defender Willy Sagnol touted as a possible replacement. While Bayern were poor in Paris, in the Bundesliga they’ve also failed to show their best form this term, trailing leaders Borussia Dortmund by three points. 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. However, there was hope the team would find their groove once the competitive football started.
