Mario Basler used to do some impressive things during his playing days as a member of Bayern Munich’s squad as well, but during the weekend it was something he said that left many stunned.
The former Germany international told Sport1 that Carlo Ancelotti is going to leave the club in January, as he has already agreed to move to China, and take charge of a CSL team.
I prefer to speak about serious things, but that’s a joke
the Italian coach told reporters at the Press conference ahead of Bayern’s Champions League game against Anderlecht.
The problem is many people didn’t understand it was a joke. They took it seriously
Ancelotti added, having no clue what made Basler tell such a ‘joke’.
As for whom he can count on in the game against Anderlecht, Ancelotti revealed that he will wait for Franck Ribery until the last moment, hoping that he will be deemed fit to start the game.
Ribery, I gave him a break against Hoffenheim because he was not 100 per cent. He had a problem on Friday and we have to check him
were Ancelotti’s words.
