Bayern Munich 'put out' Carlo Ancelotti's nasty clubhouse habit

Carlo Ancelotti
Carlo Ancelotti will have to look elsewhere to soothe his tattered nerves after being told no smoking in the clubhouse.

Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has not yet been in his new role for three weeks, but he is already laying down the law by banning coach Carlo Ancelotti from smoking inside clubrooms.

Salihamidzic, 40, was brought in to help turn Bayern's form around following an unprecedented run of five defeats in six preseason games.

The former Bayern and Juventus midfielder called his early efforts "minor details," but this one effort is clearly directed right at manager Carlo Ancelotti.

"I asked Carlo Ancelotti not smoke at the club. Of course he accepts that -- he is a true professional," Salihamidzic told Sky.

The results? Bayern have lifted the Super Cup and hammered Chemnitz 5-0 in the German Cup since Salihamidzic stopped Carlo's calming cigarette, leaving Ancelotti to comment: "This is good for my health, my wife is delighted."
