Bayern Munich Defender, Phillip Lahm, has said that he is fully convinced new Coach Carlo Ancelotti is the perfect man to take the club to greater heights.He disclosed this during an interview with Goal.com on Tuesday.
“Few coaches understand the need for the right balance as well as Carlo Ancelotti. After two weeks of training with him, I fully believe that he is the perfect man to lead Bayern Munich right now, Lahm said.
“He’s an Italian who has coached in Milan, London, Paris and Madrid, winning national and international titles.
“He knows how to speak to the players and it’s obvious that he’s excited to be here – and that makes us feel great.
“I hope that our American friends will pick up on that good feeling while we’re on this tour; it was certainly promising to see so many Bayern shirts at the airport when we arrived. I can’t wait for the game in Chicago and then it’s on to Charlotte and New York!”
Carlo Ancelotti’s team will play AC Milan in Chicago on Wednesday before playing Inter Milan in Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday.
They will wrap up the tour with a match against Real Madrid on August 3 in New Jersey.
Bayern’s Executive Board Chairman, Karl-Heinz Rummenigee, said the tour was important in building the club’s brand.
