Ancelotti - Bayern Munich won't add players despite pre-season concerns

Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti has admitted that there won't be further additions to the squad despite their dismal pre-season to date.


The German champions lost to Liverpool by a comfortable 3-0 scoreline in Audi Cup, and the Italian admits that team need to change their attitude and spirit ahead of the new Bundesliga season.

Sadio Mane opened the scoring as early as the seventh following a lapse from Bayern's summer signing CorentinTolisso. Mohamed Salah made it 2-0 for the Reds in the first period before Daniel Sturridge completed the rout with a third goal in the 83rd minute after which he was subbed off with fatigue.

Neuer Set to Captain Bayern

Since the retirement of club legend and inspirational captain Phillip Lahm earlier this year, there has been plenty of speculation in the local media about which player will adopt the armband from the outgoing 33-year-old. Names including Jerome Boateng and Thomas Muller were both rumoured to be in the running to adopt some extra responsibility this campaign but the club have recently announced that the captaincy will be handed to goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

The Bayern number one has been at the club since 2011 making over 170 appearances for the Bundesliga champions since finalising his €22million transfer. The 31-year-old has already captained the national side and can boast a World Cup winners medal and five domestic titles.

Carlo Ancelotti found his new assistant manager

The head coach of Bayern Munich, Carlo Ancelotti has been searching around for his new assistant and it seems like the Italian coach has found it as it was recently announced that the former footballer Willy Sagnol made his return to the Allianz Arena.


Willy Sagnol used to perform as a player of Bayern Munich for over 8 years where he managed to add various pieces of silverware to his collection. The former defender became a fans’ favorite and now his return to his former club has been completed.

PLAYERS LOOK FOR ASSURANCES

Bayern Munich head coach Carlo Ancelotti has dismissed the claims of Robert Lewandowski’s agent Maik Barthel that the club did not do enough to support the striker in his golden boot award chase, whilst also heading off trouble from Joshua Kimmich, who is also looking for assurances that he remains a key player for the club ahead of the 2017/18 season.

Lewandowski was widely expected to clinch the award on the final day of the season after netting 30 goals in the Bundesliga. However, his rival Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre Emerick Aubameyang stole the crown on the final day. The former Borussia Dortmund star was disappointed with how it happened, and admitted as much when he said: “It does not hurt anymore, but it did at first. Maybe because I was not completely satisfied with the way my team helped me. Immediately after the last game, I felt anger. I was disappointed with my team.”

BAYERN TO GET SPORTING DIRECTOR

Bayern Munich are expected to employ a sporting director this season, with the CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and president Uli Hoeness wanting a link between the board and manager Carlo Ancelotti. The director would work closely with the manager while observing from the outside potential issues that might affect the team.

Matthias Sammer was the man but he exited the club months back so the management is hoping to replace him soon.

LEHMANN: SANCHEZ WOULD FIT AT BAYERN

German football figure Jens Lehmann has hinted that embattled Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez should move to Bundesliga powerhouse Bayern Munich this summer. The Chilean has been linked with a move to several top clubs as he feels Arsenal’s ambitions do not match his.

Lehmann asked that the Gunners star move to Bayern. The club is seeking a capable player that can play wide as current stars are not handling the role as much as expected. Lehmann admitted that Sanchez was not the regular wide player, even though he does it well.

Will Ancelotti Bring in some English Talent?

Bayern Munich have recently been linked with a move for Tottenham Hotspur’s attacking midfielder Dele Alli in the summer. The club are already in talks about tying down Kingsley Coman on a permanent deal at the Allianz arena, and Alli would represent another exciting prospect as Carlo Ancelotti seeks to bolster his squad with fresh, young talent.

It certainly would be an interesting move for the German giants who have only ever had one other English player in their ranks before, but the new manager has never been shy to admit his love for the English game.

Brutal Bayern End Arsenal’s Champions League Hopes

On November 4th 2015, Bayern Munich thrashed Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal by five goals to one in a Champions League group stage clash. At that point, nobody had seen the Gunners capitulate quite like that as Pep Guardiola’s men ran riot from start to finish.

Less than 18 months later, it happened again; the Bavarians scored four goals in the space of 25 minutes in the second half to all but eliminate Arsenal at the last-16 stage of the competition.

Ancelotti Disappointed with Draw against Hoffenheim despite Numerous Chances

Bayern Munich’s winning run in the Bundesliga came to an end after a 1-1 draw against Hoffenheim.


Manager Carlo Ancelotti felt that Bayern Munich did everything to overcome the stubborn defence of the away team. For the sheer number of chances that they created in the game, he felt that Bayern should have won all three points. Bayern had almost 70% possession and had 11 shots on target compared to just four from the opposition. There were also numerous other opportunities for the home team to find the back of the net.
