Bayern Munich have finally confirmed who their next manager would be and it is none other than Carlo Ancelotti. This clearly means Pep Guardiola will not renew his contract and would leave at the end of the season.
Guardiola, 44, is approaching the end of his three-year contract and had promised there will be “clarity” on his plans next week, after club CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said there would be a final discussion after the game against Hannover on Saturday.
Rummenigge told BILD: “We are thankful to Guardiola for all he gave our club and hope to celebrate more success in the current season. With Ancelotti we have another very successful coach coming to Bayern. We are looking forward to working together.”
“Carlo Ancelotti has enjoyed success everywhere as a coach and has won the Champions League three times,” Rummenigge told the club website. “Carlo is a calm, balanced expert, who knows how to deal with stars and favours a multifaceted style of play — we were looking for this, and we have found it. We are looking forward to working with him.”
Ancelotti added: “I am very honoured that I will be coach of the great club FC Bayern from next season.”
