Back down to business for changing Bayern

FC Bayern München's Carlo Ancelotti wants his side to get down to business on the pitch when they face Freiburg in what will be the swansong for a number of senior players on Saturday.

The final match of the Bundesliga campaign will mark the retirement of influential stars such as Philipp Lahm and Xabi Alonso as well as senior goalkeeper Tom Starke.

Ancelotti told the club's official website, "I'm proud to have coached them, but I'm also a little sad because we’re losing two hugely important players.

"It's the final match for Lahm and Alonso, and we want to win it. We’re playing against a strong team still fighting for Europa League football."

He added that he hoped Robert Lewandowski would take the top goalscoring gong in the German top flight. The forward is currently one ahead of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with 30 goals. 

The Italian concluded, "Lewandowski has had a fantastic season, and we're all hoping he can finish as the top scorer."
