Carlo happy to inherit Pep's Bayern
Pep Guardiola's successor Carlo Ancelotti says he has changed little at Bayern Munich as the defending German champions drubbed Werder Bremen 6-0 on Friday to kick off the new season.
The Italian is clearly a fan of the adage 'never change a winning team' after Guardiola led Bayern to the German league and cup double on his swansong last season.
Under Guardiola, now head coach at Manchester City, and his predecessor Jupp Heynckes, Bayern won the last four Bundesliga titles in a row, a record in Germany's top flight.
Ancelotti says he made few changes to Guardiola's set up as Robert Lewandowski netted a hattrick and Bayern enjoyed 70 percent possession at Munich's Allianz Arena.
"I changed very little as this is a very strong team, maybe we just need to play forward a little more," Ancelotti told German broadcaster ARD.
"I am very happy. That was a very good performance from my team.
"We got off to a good start and took control of the game early on.
"We played well over the 90 minutes, I'm happy and there are only a few things to improve.”
