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 have shown no intentions of slowing down as they have moved in swiftly to wrap up a couple of signings well before the start of the Euro 2016. Undoubtedly, Ancelotti will have played a major role in the signings of the players. This will be his first job at the German club, but he is one of the multifaceted managers in world football and is expected to be comfortable at his new club. Ancelotti has managed the biggest clubs in the world like Chelsea, Real Madrid, AC Milan, and Paris St Germain. Atletico Madrid managed to defeat Bayern Munich and reach the Champions League final.

This was the second defeat to a Spanish opponent by the German outfit in the last three years."Congratulations to Atletico for making the final. We have tried, as we did last year against Barcelona, and that's it.I am happy to have come here [to Bayern]. I hope that Ancelotti can bring that final step to the team that I could not in three years. I've been happy to work here, because of these players. The new coach can be happy to work with these guys. Of course I wanted to win the Champions League with Bayern and I tried my best to do that -- I've given my life for this team,” said Guardiola.
