I feel for my colleague - Bosz offers support to axed Ancelotti
Borussia Dortmund manager Peter Bosz put club rivalries to one side on Friday to declare his sympathy for the out-of-work Carlo Ancelotti.
Bayern Munich sacked Italian Ancelotti onÂ Thursday,Â less than 24 hours after a 3-0 defeat toÂ Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
The result in Europe proved to beÂ the last straw for the Bavarian club's board, particularly after they'd suffered theirÂ worst start to a domestic campaign since 2010-11.
"First of all it is always disappointing when a colleague gets sacked,"Â BoszÂ told the media.
"I feel forÂ my colleague.Â I don't know exactly what happened there and I also don't know the reasons why he was fired.
"For me, as a coach andÂ a human being, it is just disappointing when a colleague gets fired. I don't have to say more than that."
While upheaval at Bayern could work in Dortmund's favour, Bosz insists events elsewhere won't alter his squad's mindset.
"If we have to get the motivation from a coach getting fired, then this wouldnâ€™t be good," he added.Â
"The motivation always has to be there and is always there. We donâ€™t need a firing of a Bayern coach. We don't need that."
Dortmund lost to Real Madrid in Champions League action in midweek but will look to maintain their unbeaten Bundesliga record when they travel to Augsburg on Saturday.
