Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has said former Los Blacnos boss Carlo Ancelotti would make a good manager for Bayern Munich.
The Italian was sacked at the end of the season for failing to win La Liga or the Champions League and has said he will be taking time out from the game to undergo surgery in Canada and recharge his batteries ahead of looking for a new challenge.
Ancelotti has been successful in Italy, England, France and Spain in his managerial career with Germany perhaps the most obvious choice as his next destination should he wish to manage in a new country.
Current boss Pep Guardiola has a deal until 2016 and there is no suggestion Ancelotti will replace him before that.
But speaking to Sport Bild, Kroos – a key member of Germany’s World Cup winning squad last summer – said Ancelotti would be an ideal fit at the Bavarian giants.
“Ancelotti would be an interesting option for Bundesliga clubs,” Kroos said.
He added: “Of course, there would only be one or two clubs in Germany that would be an option for a world-class coach like him. Ancelotti is internationally oriented and speaks English. Why would he not be successful with a club like Bayern? He would be a good fit for a Bundesliga side.”
