Ancelotti fired

Bayern Munich is one of those clubs where only victories count. Carlo Ancelotti, one of the world's greatest managers (three Champions League titles) knew this, having managed other big clubs such as AC Milan, Paris St. Germain and Real Madrid. So it cannot have been a surprise for him when he was fired, following the Bavarian 0-3 defeat against Paris St. Germain.
Don't mind that Paris St. Germain, with Neymar, probably is the hottest club in the world at the moment. Such a defeat is unacceptable, but it also comes after a poor start in the Bundesliga, which Bayern Munich has won for the last five seasons: only third place after six matches...
It is harsh indeed, but Bayern Munich have ambitions to win every year.
Bayern Munich is to be temporarily managed by Willy Sagnol. The question is who, after Jupp Heynckes, Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti (seven Champions League titles between the three), is experienced enough to take on one of the most difficult manager jobs in the world.
