New details have emerged about the fallout between Carlo Ancelotti and his players at Bayern Munich.
The Italian manager parted ways with the German champions after a disappointing start of the season. The 3-0 defeat to PSG in Champions League was decisive for the fate of Ancelotti and Bayern’s management have decided to let him go.
According to Kicker, several Bayern Munich players were training behind their coach’s back. Multiple big names in the German champions’ squad were unhappy with the training methods of Ancelotti and several of them even took action and planned their own training schedules.
Thomas Muller, Manuel Neuer and Jerome Boateng have been named on the report published by Kicker. The three joined the likes of Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and Mats Hummels on the list of players that were not happy with the methods of Carlo Ancelotti.
Furthermore, it appears that some of the players even went above their manager’s head at the beginning of the season, to discuss the quality of the training sessions with the club’s CEO, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
Ancelotti was informed about the players’ dissatisfaction with the training schedule and work routine, but the Italian didn’t change anything in his approach. That was the moment when players decided to take their fate in their own hands and schedule separate training sessions for themselves.
Recently, Arjen Robben publicly criticised Carlo Ancelotti’s methods, stating that even his son is receiving better training with the youth team of Bayern Munich.
