Jupp Heynckes to replace Ancelotti at Bayern

Kroos worked for one season with Pep Guardiola and insists he made a'big step forward

"[I asked him] not to be conditioned by a situation because he had to do what the club expected".

"I wouldn't take it if I was Ancelotti".

Thomas Tüchel, Luis Enrique and Louis van Gaal are among the names to have been linked with the Allianz Arena in the wake of Ancelotti's departure after last week's 3-0 Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

Heynckes will be desperate to win over the dressing room at Bayern after much of the squad lost faith in Ancelotti towards the end of the Italian's tenure.

"But for a while now I, and my coaches, have been thinking about how to improve things in the Bundesliga and that it's wrong to praise the Bundesliga to the high heavens or say only the Bundesliga produces the best talent".

Italy vs Macedonia UEFA World Cup Qualifying
Goalscorer Giorgio Chiellini has urged Italy fans to remain behind their nation as the Azzurri head into the uncertainty of the World Cup qualifying playoffs.

He also coached Bayern from 1987-91 and briefly took over at the end of the 2008/9 season before becoming head coach between 2011 and 2013.

On the pitch their opponents have been both shaky in defence and lacking cohesion going forward, which is unlikely to be helped by this disruption off it. He led Rennes to a ninth-place finish in Ligue 1 last season, but has won just one of the opening eight matches of the current campaign.

72-year-old Jupp Heynckes is set to come out of retirement to take charge of Bayern for the fourth time. Bayern's president Uli Hoeness is reportedly the main man driving Bayern's pursuit of Nagelsmann. They are currently third in the Bundesliga, behind Bayern on goal difference.

Hoffenheim's coach Julian Nagelsmann is Hoeness' favoured successor to Ancelotti, according to reports by Sport Bild.
