The 58-year-old ex-Chelsea boss, who took over the reins at the Allianz Arena in July 2016, had his contract terminated after the side’s 3-0 thumping away at Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. Robben refused to back Ancelotti after the defeat at PSG and the forward has once again thrown shade at the Italian as Bayern search for his successor. Asked about Ancelotti’s time at the club, Robben told German outlet: ‘There’s better training at my son’s youth team [than under Ancelotti].’
It’s claimed both Xabi Alonso and Philipp Lahm complained to Bayern officials regarding Ancelotti’s training methods last term. However, the former AC Milan and Italy midfielder kept his job after steering the Bundesliga giants to the title.
Willy Sagnol has taken over as interim coach, with ex-Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel favourite to come in as Ancelotti’s long-term replacement.
