Bayern Munich's 3-0 defeat by Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night could prove to be the end of the road for manager Carlo Ancelotti.

"Our team's performances did not meet our expectations from the start of the season".

However, a succession of unconvincing performances during pre-season spilled into the campaign-proper this time around and Bayern are now off the pace in the Bundesliga, lying third - three points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund ahead of Sunday's trip to Hertha Berlin. They are on course to win the section - Bayern are level on three points with Celtic, who won at Anderlecht. "That's what I told (sporting director) Hasan Salihamidzic and Carlo today in an open and serious talk, and I told him our decision", Rummenigge said. I would like to thank Carlo for the collaboration and regret the way things have developed. "Carlo is and will continue to be my friend, but we had to take a professional decision in the interests of Bayern Munich". "I now expect from the team a positive development and absolute passion so that we reach our goals".
