Bayern Munich want to find a successor to sacked coach Carlo Ancelotti within the next two weeks, club president Uli Hoeness said on Friday.

Ancelotti was abruptly dismissed on Thursday in the wake of Bayern's 3-0 Champions League loss at Paris Saint-Germain the previous night.

Hoeness told German radio station FFH, "We're not under any pressure, but after the two-week [international] break we want to have a solution."

Assistant coach Willy Sagnol, the ex-France international, will be in charge of the team for Sunday's Bundesliga outing at Hertha Berlin.

Local media suggest two German managers, Thomas Tuchel and Julian Nagelsmann, could be in the frame to replace the Italian.
