Mats Hummels has slammed rumours that he turned on sacked Bayern Munich manager, Carlo Ancelotti.
The former Real Madrid manager was relieved of his duties, in the wake of the 3-0 thrashing to Paris Saint-Germain in the UCL.
President Uli Hoeness later suggested that five senior players were unhappy with Ancelotti and due to the fact that that Hummels was left out of the match. It has been suggested he was one of the five.
“I had no conversation with anyone to say I was dissatisfied because I didn’t play in Paris,” he told Bild.
“Five players were talked about and I cannot speak for the other four, but I haven’t had a conversation about being unhappy because I wasn’t playing or anything like this.
“To be called a ‘king slayer’ is out of order. I don’t know how this information originated or if it was written because I did not play. I don’t like it. I just wouldn’t do that.”
Hummels admits it has been difficult to adjust to the departure of Ancelotti, along with his backroom staff.
“It’s the first time I’ve experienced a change in coach during the season,” said the Germany international “It’s a really strange feeling not having him around, but also the four other guys are no longer there.”
