Carlo Ancelotti has revealed he is not out to oversee a revolution at the Allianz Arena, but is looking to bring an evolution.
Bayern Munich will play Werder Bremen in the first match of the new campaign, a week after beating Jena 5-0 in the DFB cup.
Ancelotti replaced Pep Guardiola at the club, after the Spaniard helped the German giants dominate for three seasons.
“I have not decided yet how I will play. I want to talk to my players but there will be no revolution,” he told a pre-match news conference.
“I do not want a revolution here. Before my time there were a lot of good things, which I want to build on and maintain.
“I want to do a few things differently, perhaps somewhat vertically so play will come forward quickly.
“The responsibility is, in any case, 100 per cent with me.”
