Ancelotti: Not winning UCL no catastrophe

FC Bayern München manager Carlo Ancelotti believes that winning the UEFA Champions League is an objective, but he would not view it as a catastrophe should his side not triumph in the competition.

The Italian has started well with the Bavarians, although his side did lose to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League and then dropped points at home more recently to FC Koln in the Bundesliga prior to the international break.

FC Hollywood have made no secret of wanting to recapture Europe's elite club competition, a tournament they last won in 2012/13 when Jupp Heynckes was still in charge.

With that said, the 57-year-old has made it clear that he wants to challenge for major honours with Bayern, but it is not in his nature to view a lack of success as being a catastrophic situation.

He told the Bundesliga's official website: "Maybe it's part of my character. I've never had very impulsive people around me. My father was very calm, as were my teachers and my coaches when I was a player myself.

"When you love something, you don't feel any pressure. I think a lot before games and get disappointed when things don't go as I'd hoped, but I don't view it as a catastrophe. Here in Munich, winning the Champions League is an objective, not an obligation."
