Gareth Bale has said Carlo Ancelotti being in charge of Bayern, has made them a tougher team to beat.
Ancelotti won Madrid’s 10th champions league in 2014 and he’s aiming to win the European honour against his former club.
“If you look at the past three Bayern managers each of them has introduced something a bit different without their approach affecting the success of the team,” Bale says of Ancelotti and his predecessors Pep Guardiola and Jupp Heynckes.
“Ancelotti has probably made them a bit harder to beat but they are still deadly going forward. He’s a great manager so you expect him to make an impact and be successful wherever he goes.”
“It’ll obviously be a huge game as they are such a dangerous and well-established team,” he says. “With the first leg being in Munich we really need to try score an away goal and defend well, so that we can make the most of the second leg being at the Bernabeu.”
