Carlo Ancelotti expressed his delight at joining "one of the best clubs in the world" as he laid out his plan for continued success with Bayern Munich in the years to come.

The Italian steps into the large boots left by Pep Guardiola, who won three straight Bundesliga titles during his time in charge, but he is confident of being able to continue the record German champions' recent success story while adding more trophies to his own roll of honour.

"I'm very happy and proud to be here and I want to thank Bayern for this," Ancelotti said.

"I feel very good because I'm at one of the best clubs in the world, but I am looking forward to the start of a new season.

"I think my friend Guardiola did excellent work in recent years. We have a fantastic team and I'm delighted, and we will try to be strong in all competitions and to win.

"A new season starts today and I hope for this club and for all Bayern fans that this will be a great season."
