Ancelotti: Bayern are like family

FC Bayern München manager Carlo Ancelotti has indicated that he wants to stay at the club for more than two years, in addition to saying they are like a family.

The well-traveled Italian has enjoyed an unbeaten start to life with the Bundesliga champions, recording six victories in as many games in all competitions.

Ancelotti, who has managed the likes of Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, told German newspaper TZ: "I would love to stay here longer than two years.

"There are clubs that feel like a company and there are clubs that feel like a family. Bayern feels like a family."

Ancelotti's current contract is set to expire in 2019, but the inevitable determining factor for him remaining at the Allianz Arena would be him clinching the UEFA Champions League – something predecessor Pep Guardiola failed to do in his three-year stint in Bavaria.
