Carlo Ancelotti would be an excellent choice of manager for Bayern Munich should Pep Guardiola leave his role at the end of the campaign, says Toni Kroos.
The German midfielder left the Bundesliga outfit in the summer of 2014 to join Real Madrid, who were then managed by the Italian boss.
Ancelotti was fired in the summer for failing to lead Los Blancos to major honours last season and is taking a year out from the game. But with Guardiola non-committal on whether he will stay at the Allianz Arena beyond this season, rumours are increasing that Ancelotti’s next job could be in Germany.
Guardiola has been linked a move to the Premier League, with Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal believed to be lining up his services should Jose Mourinho, Manuel Pellegrini or Arsene Wenger leave their posts.
Speaking to Sport Bild, Kroos said Ancelotti was one of the world’s best coaches and one suited to Bayern.
“Certainly, a world-class coach like him would only consider one, maybe two clubs in Germany. He’s very international, also speaks English. Why shouldn’t he be successful with a top club like Bayern? He would in any case be a very interesting man for the Bundesliga,” he stated.
