Carlo Ancelotti is not unduly worried by Bayern Munich’s disappointing pre-season results and recalled a similar situation while in charge at Real Madrid, who then went on to enjoy a 22-match winning streak.
Bayern have been beaten by Arsenal, AC Milan, Inter, Liverpool and Napoli during their preparations for the new campaign, leading to fears about their readiness for the coming season.
“Our performance was not good against Milan and Liverpool, otherwise it was fine,” he told a news conference ahead of the DFL-Supercup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.
“We are not yet in the best shape, but we have a lot of quality and we still have two weeks to be ready [for their first Bundesliga match against Bayer Leverkusen].
“In Madrid it was similar, [but] then we did not lose 22 games and won the Champions League in the end.”
