Carlo Ancelotti has been sacked by Bayern Munich this afternoon.
The first report appeared onÂ ESPNÂ with the news confirmed in mid afternoon with the decision was taken after last night’s 3-0 defeat from Paris Saint Germain.
The veteran Italian took charge of Bayern last summer, replacing Pep Guardiola but has struggled to make an impact this season after last season’s expected Bundesliga triumph.
Bayern are sitting in third place in the table after six matches and were outclassed by PSG last night.
An afternoon announcement confirmed the departure of the 58-year-old who includes Real Madrid, PSG, Juventus, Chelsea and Milan on his CV.
Jurgen Klopp is among the favourites to take charge but with the season two months old it looks like the German giants will have to appoint a caretaker boss ahead of the Champions League double header against Celtic.
Last night’s loss was Bayern’s highest ever defeat in a group stage match.
