Hoffenheim boss Julian Nagelsmann: I'd be happier managing Bayern Munich

'Ancelotti to leave Bayern in January'

Robert Lewandowski on Bayern's transfers and the commercialization of football

United eventually signed a Bayern Munich player that summer, as Bastian Schweinsteiger swapped the Allianz Arena for Old Trafford and Muller has not ruled out the possibility of emulating his former teammate.

Like many top clubs, Bayern, who lost 2-0 to Hoffenheim on Saturday, spent their preaseason on the other side of the world, something that Lewandowski is also unsure about.

Anderlecht had Sven Kums sent off after 11 minutes for fouling Robert Lewandowski to concede a penalty, which the Pole scored - his seventh goal in six games this season.

The source said a break clause in Ancelotti's contract at the end of his second season could prompt Bayern to make a change if he fails to challenge for the Champions League. No chump change but far less than spent by the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, Real Madrid or the top English Premier League teams.

Although Tuesday's 3-0 scoreline sounded convincing, Bayern illustrated Lewandowski's point by struggling for long periods to see off a side who played with 10 men for so long.

"We have won all national and worldwide titles possible over the past five years".

"He's a fantastic player between the rooms, we like to use this type of player to have more control over the game in possession".

Ribery - who doesn't drink on religious grounds - was still able to crack a smile alongside boss Carlo Ancelotti, Muller, Arturo Vidal and Co. "I have to speak with him about the strategy for the match against Anderlecht". He was clearly angry. 'You have to ask Basler if he is so convinced. "I can understand that he wants to play 90 minutes but I cannot understand his reaction", said Ancelotti.

Lewandowski was also critical of Bayern's pre-season marketing tours and the endless campaigns to open up new, global markets, arguably at the expense of local fans. Yes, we're talking about you, Vincent Janssen.

Anderlecht don't have too many star names going forward, so scoring goals could pose a problem for the Belgians, especially as they're coming up against a strong Bayern defence.
