A bit harsh, don't you think?
Carlo Ancelotti has been sacked as manager of Bayern Munich.
Following Wednesday's 3-0 Champions League defeat by Paris St-Germain, the club's board has decided to dismiss the Italian, who replaced Pep Guardiola at the start of last season.
Seemed to be a lot of complaints about him. About how he was setting up the team. About how Ancelotti's methods were not suited to German football. About how he was dealing with individual players. Failure to rotate the squad last year. Failure to develop young players (Coman, Sanches). Criticisms from the board. From the media. Former players.
Failure to bring the best out of multiple players. A lot of individuals in the team seemed unhappy. More complaints and criticisms from inside the team. From Lewandowski, Muller, Robben. Team's style of play was in decline. Not organized as well defensively. More space between the lines than in recent years.
It had been coming. Firing Ancelotti.
To be honest, I think they can do better. Ancelotti was doing a middling job there. And middling work isn't good enough for a team like Bayern.
I can't wait to see who they hire to replace him.
