Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, the CEO of Bayern Munich, did not waste any time in letting his feelings be known about Carlo Ancelotti. A shock loss to TSG 1899 Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga, a draw against Wolfsburg and an away loss to Unai Emery’s Paris Saint-Germain midweek have forced Rummenigge’s hand and today, the club announced the termination of the Italian’s contract. Willy Sagnol has been assigned to take charge of the club in the interim while the search begins for a new manager.

During Ancelotti’s short spell at Bayern Munich, the Bavarians defending their Bundesliga trophy for the 2016-17 season and won the DFL-Supercup in 2016 and 2017. This short spell completes a sixth major brand that Ancelotti has managed. Other clubs that Ancelotti was the gaffer for include Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.

At the same time, Ancelotti may not be out of managing football clubs for very long as Vincenzo Montella, the current AC Milan manager, is in some hot water for not being able to make use of the talent on the pitch. Milan currently sit sixth in Serie A and have lost twice in their first six rounds of league play.

In 60 matches managed for Bayern Munich, Ancelotti finished his time at the club with 42 victories, nine defeats, 2.26 goals per game, 2.25 points per game and a 70 percent win percentage, stats that are dwarfed by current Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola. Ultimately, the two recent defeats in three contests proved to be the death knell for Ancelotti at the club and Bayern will have to figure out how to return to form as Hoffenheim and Borussia Dortmund rise to potentially turn the tables on the defending Bundesliga champions.
