Carlo Ancelotti Will Become Next Manager Of Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich has recently confirmed that Carlo Ancelotti will become the new manager of the team next season. This follows Pep Guardiola’s announcement that he will be departing the Bundesliga at the conclusion of this season.
Guardiola has been an extremely successful coach over the past several seasons with Bayern, but he is now looking for a new challenge to take on. He meant a lot to the organization during his time with the team and he will leave Bayern Munich in good standing.
“We appreciate everything Guardiola gave to our club and hope to celebrate a lot of success this season”, Rummenigge told Bild
Ancelotti has been a successful coach as well and will likely make a seamless transition into his role as the leader of this franchise. If Ancelotti is able to win the Bundesliga with Bayern, he will become the second coach to have won league titles in four of Europe’s top six leagues.
Rummengiee and the rest of the organization are excited about the future of Ancelotti and believe they will be handing the keys over to someone who is more than capable of continuing the teams run of success.
The former Spain global has been out of work since leaving Real Madrid at the end of the 2014-15 season. Although he had been linked with a return to Milan over the summer, he opted to take time away from football in order to undergo surgery.
Guardiola’s departure has been widely expected, as several top Premier League clubs are reportedly interested in the 44-year-old coach. Bayern Munich is now preparing to bid farewell to him after three great seasons.
Bayern faces 2015 runner-up Juventus in the round of 16 in the Champions League. This competition has only brought about disappointment in Munich for Guardiola, with semifinal defeats to Real Madrid and Barcelona in the previous years. Guardiola is hopefully that they can claim victory before his reign in Germany comes to a close.
