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.


Full back and captain for Bayern Munich, Philip Lahm has said that he may have to retire once the season comes to an end.

Lahm, who has been with Bayern since 2002, going on loan for VFB Stuttgart between 2003 and 2005, has so far spent 11 years at the team, aside loan when loaned out.


Arsenal summer transfer addition Shkodran Mustafi has said he had the option of playing for German champions Bayern Munich as a teenager but he chose to play for Hamburg.

The German 2014 World Cup winner spoke to News outlet, Bild, saying:

“I had trials at Hamburg, Eintracht, Frankfurt, Werder Bremen and even FC Bayern. My father asked me where it suited me best, so I opted for HSV.”

Bayern draws match

Bayern Munich has lost their 100% start to the season by dropping their first points in the game against Cologne.

The draw followed the defeat against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League and seemed to expose the weakness of the German champions.

Douglas Costa has stated that he has been amazed at the quality of Carlo Ancelotti.

Mats Hummels gives the reason why he chose Bayern Munich

Mats Hummels has completed his move to Bayern Munich from Borussia Dortmund and will join the club on the 1st of July.

He has admitted that there were other clubs that were interested in signing him and that he has chosen to play for Bayern Munich. He has revealed that one of those clubs was Manchester United.

He said that the fact that Manchester United will not be playing in the Champions League next season had impacted his decision. He stated that he would have been interested to play in the Premier League, but the only club that was interested in him could not offer him Champions League football. For this reason, he has agreed to stay in the Bundesliga and move to Bayern Munich.


German champions Bayern Munich were rumoured to have excluded Mario Gotze’s name from the club’s UEFA Champions League squad. The Chief Executive, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has come out to dispel such rumours. He said such reports are mere “fiction.”

Gotze who is currently in France on international duty for Germany is heavily linked with a move from the German club.

A reunion with his former manager at Borussia Dortmund, Jurgen Klopp was believed to be the best move that will see him enjoying regular football again but the talented player has shut such declaring his intention to remain at the club.

Pep Guardiola confident on Carlo Ancelotti

Outgoing manager Pep Guardiola says that he hopes new boss Carlo Ancelotti will lead Bayern Munich to the Champions League final.

Failure in the semi-final in each of the three seasons managed by Guardiola has been one of the biggest regrets that the Spaniard has had from his time at the German club. Despite being immensely successful in the Champions League, Guardiola was unable to get the club beyond the last hurdle. Ancelotti has already been revealed as the next manager of Bayern Munich and he will take over once Guardiola completes his move to Manchester City.

Bayern Munich looking to find their Team work in Final Stages of European Club

Bayern Munich are playing in their fifth consecutive Champions League semi-final and it shows the dominance that they have had in Europe.

However, the club has lifted just one European honour in the last five years and this is another proof that they have choked at the final stages more often than not. It has especially been the case under Pep Guardiola’s regime. Despite reaching the semi-finals twice under the Spanish manager, they have been knocked out in both occasions. There is a feeling of déjà vu ahead of the second leg against Atletico Madrid at the Allianz Arena as a result of a 1-0 defeat in the first leg.
