Hitzfeld tips Ancelotti for success with Bayern

FC Bayern München fans can look forward to continued success under Carlo Ancelotti, with former coach Ottmar Hitzfeld predicting a seamless transition when he takes over from Pep Guardiola from Monday.

Bayern have won a league record four straight Bundesliga titles with three of those coming during the Catalan's reign. Guardiola may now be gone, but Hitzfeld believes success is here to stay as he praises the record German champions for appointing Ancelotti.

"I can only compliment Bayern Munich on getting Carlo Ancelotti," Hitzfeld told Omnisport. "He's a nice coach who is also very communicative and understands a lot of tactics as an Italian. He will prepare his team for their opponents in the best possible way and Bayern will continue to win the league under Ancelotti."
