Bayern Munich coach, Carlo Ancelotti, has appointed his son, Davide, as an assistant coach at the Allianz Arena.
The announcement came as a surprise, as the 27-year-old has little experience.
Davide is a former AC Milan youth player, where he failed to make the grade. He eventually left to study sport science.
He worked with his father briefly when he was manager of Real Madrid as a fitness coach.
Speaking to Bayern’s official YouTube channel, he said: “My job at Bayern is to support the coaches both in training and in pre-match preparations, as well as during games.
“On the training pitch, I explain exercises or just help out with the language. My father speaks German but doesn’t understand everything yet.
“I can speak German well because I’ve been studying the language for eight months. I like the language – it’s difficult but I find it very interesting.
“I’m looking forward to learning many things here as a coach, but also as a person, like a new culture and a new language.
“The atmosphere at Bayern is incredible. You can sense the tradition. Despite being such a big club, it’s like a family and the atmosphere reflects that.
“I felt that way at AC Milan too and it’s very difficult to find something like that.”
