New Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti has no plans to rip up the foundations laid by predecessor Pep Guardiola and says he will look to continue the club’s tradition of attacking football when the season kicks off in August.
The Italian has large boots to fill as Guardiola, who switched to English Premier League side Manchester City, won three straight Bundesliga titles during his time at the helm of the Bavarian side.
Having managed AC Milan, Paris St-Germain, Chelsea, Juventus and Real Madrid, Ancelotti said he had become accustomed to the pressure that comes with the job.
Bayern kick off their title defence against Werder Bremen on August 26.
