Bayern Munich highlights club’s intention to work with younger players

Bayern Munich president UliHoeness has seemingly denied suggestions that his club could pursue the services of Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez this summer.

The Chile international is entering the final year of his Gunners deal, and it is widely predicted that he could switch his allegiance to a Champions League-based club. The Bavarian giants have been deemed frontrunners for a while with national teammate Arturo Vidal also urging Sanchez to pick the German champions over other suitors.

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.


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.”

Robert Lewandowski blames his teammates for missing out on top scorer award

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has placed the blame on his fellow teammates after he missed out on the top goalscorer award in the Bundesliga.

The Bavarian giants celebrated their fifth consecutive league triumph in the German top flight last term, but it is not a happy point on a personal view for Lewandowski.


Phillip Lahm got the pleasure of leaving the international scene with a World Cup trophy.

He retired after Germany’s triumph in Brazil 3 years ago – ending the season with Bayern falling to Madrid in the quarter final of this season’s Champions League – on the back of 3 consecutive semi-final exits. This must have dampened the euphoria during his exit and perhaps denied him the reality of how he pictured the end of his club career.


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.

Carlo Ancelotti Not Entirely Happy despite League Title

Bayern Munich managed to win yet another this league title and they did so by managing a spectacular 6-0 win over Wolfsburg.

However, manager Carlo Ancelotti was not extremely happy with this victory, as he admitted that the results of the knockout competitions have left him with a bad feeling about the campaign. Bayern Munich suffered exits in the Champions League and DFB Pokal cup against Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund respectively. One of the major tasks for Ancelotti when he took over from Pep Guardiola was to dominate European competitions, while continuing to remain the major force in German football.

Carlo Ancelotti Blames Referee for Champions League Exit

Carlo Ancelotti has claimed that the refereeing in the Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid was not up to the mark.

The Italian was clearly not happy with the way his team were knocked out of the competition. Even though Bayern Munich suffered a heavy 6-3 defeat against the Spanish team, Ancelotti felt that at least two of the goals could have been disallowed by the referee. The club had produced an incredible performance in the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu to overturn a 2-1 deficit. A penalty from Robert Lewandowski and a Sergio Ramos own goal helped overcome the solitary goal from Ronaldo in the first half.

Carlo Ancelotti Tips Xabi Alonso for Great Future as Manager

The Spaniard recently announced his retirement from the game at the end of the season.

He has had a spectacular career while playing for the likes of Liverpool, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich. Few players get the chance to play for multiple Champions League winners, but Alonso has had the opportunity of playing for these three clubs, who between them share an incredible 20 European cup titles. Alonso has also been personally successful by lifting the Champions League twice in his career. Few players have managed to win this competition, but Alonso has been successful on two occasions with two different clubs.
