In an interview with ESPNFC's Gabriele Marcotti, Carlo Ancelotti has declared that he did not want to start a revolution at Bayern after what Pep Guardiola had started at the club.

The former Real Madrid manager took over at the German club after Pep Guardiola had managed the club for three years. He says he arrived at a "fantastic club" and a team with plenty of knowledge of the tactical side of the game.

He says, "I didn't want to do a revolution because the team didn't need a revolution, I wanted to follow the line that Guardiola put in the last three years and try to do some changes, maybe try to play more vertical."

Ancelotti has led Bayern to top of the Bundesliga in his first year in charge.
