5 replacements for Carlo Ancelotti at Bayern Munich

Club CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge called for "consequences" following the 3-0 loss at the Parc des Princes, and unfortunately for manager Carlo Ancelotti that could spell the end of his coaching tenure in the German capital.

Ancelotti was seen as the ideal manager to bring the Champions League back to the Allianz Arena, but they lost 6-3 on aggregate to Real Madrid in last season's quarter-final, while Dortmund knocked them out of the DFB-Pokal Cup last term too.

The German giants were comfortably beaten in Paris, leading to further speculation regarding Ancelotti's future following a less than flawless start to the campaign which has seen Bayern beaten at Hoffenheim and held at home by Wolfsburg.

Ancelotti was forced to defend his team selection after the midweek defeat having left Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben and Mats Hummels on the bench, while Jerome Boateng was not included in the squad. In the first half, we had good control of the game, good possession, some chances.

"(Bayern sporting director) Hasan Salihamidzic and I had an open and serious discussion with Carlo today and informed him of our decision.

"I thank Carlo for his work with us and regret the way things have developed", he added. Carlo is my friend and will remain so, but we had to make a professional decision in Bayern's interests. "What we saw was not Bayern". However, he failed to achieve the primary goal that he had been entrusted with; leading Bayern Munich to their first Champions League title since 2013.

The Italian spent two years at Chelsea, from 2009 to 2011, where he won three trophies, including the EPL title in the 2009/10 season.

Dani Alves, Edinson Cavani and Neymar netted as PSG cruised.

"I believe that we can all agree on this", Rummenigge, pointing to the Bayern hierarchy and the Bayern coach staff seated at the same table.
