New Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti handed Carl Zeiss Jena chance

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner respond to Bayern Munich urging Mario Gotze to leave.
Carlo Ancelotti will join the club on July 1 officially.

Bayern Munich's new coach Carlo Ancelotti will get a swift chance to banish the demons of one of the bitterest defeats of his illustrious playing career when the German Cup holders begin their defence against Carl Zeiss Jena in the first round in eight weeks' time.

Bundesliga still leads the way as new clubs emerge from Eastern Germany

Christian Seifert has long been bullish about the Bundesliga's quality. Things might dip in 2016-17.

Two years ago, the German Football League (DFL) launched an English language publication called "Bundesliga: The Magazine." In his first editorial, DFL chairman Christian Seifert explained that this step had been taken "in recognition of the increasing popularity internationally" before listing "many good reasons to get enthralled by the Bundesliga." Because the national team had just won the World Cup, Seifert drew attention to the many young and exciting active players in the league. He also...
