After that game the Italian was questioned by German media about his tactics and team selection, following his decision to leave Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben and Mats Hummels on the bench at kickoff.

After Bayern Munich received a 3-0 hammering by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last night, manager Carlo Ancelotti has been sacked.

"The performance of our team since the start of the season did not meet the expectations we put to them", Rummenigge said. "The match against Paris clearly showed that we need to draw consequences from this defeat", Bayern's CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said in a statement.

Jurgen Klopp is among the contenders to be the next manager of Bayern Munich after Carlo Ancelotti parted company with the club following a disappointing start to the new season. "I expect the team to produce a positive response and show absolute determination to achieve our targets for the season".

Ancelotti enjoyed success at Bayern in his first season, winning the Bundesliga title.

The signing of Mo Salah looks to be a serious piece of business yet the farce involving Virgil van Dijk of Southampton was embarrassing.

"I thank Carlo for the cooperation and regret the development".

Some reports suggest Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is a real target for the Bundesliga champions to replace Ancelotti after missing out on the former Borussia Dortmund manager previously.

That led Bayern to pull the trigger, but where will Ancelotti go now?

Here's the seven things we learnt from this week's Champions League, including good news for English clubs.

"I'm now in my ninth season with Bayern, this is something I am not accustomed to". For a while, the team will be handled by assistant coach Willy Sagnol.

Ancelotti's under-performing Bayern are back in action on Sunday, away to Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga. "We had to take control, and we had chances too".

But they were eliminated by eventual winners Real Madrid in extra-time of a thrilling quarter-final and their hopes of a domestic double were ended in the German Cup semi-finals by Dortmund.
