Inter 1-4 Bayern Munich: Julian Green strikes first half hat-trick as Ancelotti's men ease past Nerazzurri

The United States international stole the headlines on home soil as he inspired Carlo Ancelotti’s men to an impressive victory over the Serie A side

Julian Green enjoyed a happy American homecoming as he scored a first-half hat-trick in Bayern Munich’s 4-1 thrashing of Inter in the International Champions Cup.

United States international Green has struggled to break into Bayern’s first team and had been linked with a loan move away from the Allianz Arena in the close-season.

But head coach Carlo Ancelotti stated this week that the 21-year-old has a role to play and the forward was in sublime form in the continued absence of Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.

Green turned home David Alaba’s cross to put Bayern ahead, before Franck Ribery quickly made it 2-0.

A clinical finish from Green stretched the lead further and a shell-shocked Inter were 4-0 down at the break when he completed his hat-trick inside 35 minutes.

The Bundesliga champions failed to replicate the same performance after the break, but the damage had been done long before Mauro Icardi netted a 90th-minute consolation.  

Ancelotti, whose side lost on penalties to AC Milan in their Champions Cup opener after a 3-3 thriller, can now look forward to a reunion with former club Real Madrid on Thursday.

Roberto Mancini, meanwhile, has much to ponder ahead of the Serie A season with Inter having been completely outclassed in North Carolina.

It took Bayern just seven minutes to break the deadlock as Alaba’s exquisite left-wing centre was side-footed home by the sliding Green.

Bayern were dominant in all departments and it was 2-0 six minutes later. Fabian Benko showed great footwork to the drag the ball to the byline with his left foot and cut back with his right for Ribery to tap in.

Inter imploded on the half-hour mark when some amateur defending at an aerial ball near the halfway line left Bayern with a two-on-one and Ribery slipped in Green, who coolly slotted home into the bottom right-hand corner from the edge of the box.

And Green completed his hat-trick in the 35th minute by tapping into the unguarded net after a superb ball across the face of goal from Benko.

Inter showed some improvement after the break with Bayern dropping off the pace and Rodrigo Palacio cut onto his left foot and got a shot away at goal that Alaba blocked.

Mancini brought on Icardi for the last 20 minutes, the Argentina striker having not played against PSG amid rumours he is being lined up by Napoli to replace Gonzalo Higuain, and he bagged a late strike by capitalising on an Alaba error and calmly side-footing home when one-on-one with the goalkeeper.

'It's not acceptable!' – Rummenigge tells off Ribery over Guardiola dig

The Roten chief was not impressed with the former France international’s comments on the Catalan coach following Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has told Franck Ribery off after his recent criticism of ex-coach Pep Guardiola.

The Frenchman took aim at the current Manchester City manager earlier this week, stating Guardiola “lacks experience” and “talks too much”.

Rummenigge, however, has made it the clear the experienced winger’s comments are not acceptable.

“Ribery’s reaction normal for a frustrated player? No, there is no reason to hit out at Guardiola,” Rummenigge told Bayrischen Rundfunk.

“We have won a lot of things during Guardiola’s time in charge.

“We have hugely benefited from Guardiola’s spell and there is no point in hitting out at him like that. It is too soon to make comparisons between Guardiola and Ancelotti.

“Carlo has a slightly different style, but each coach has his own ideas when it comes to tactics. Pep was all about dominant football and about having the ball.

“The important thing is winning and being successful, though.”

Schweinsteiger will stay at Man Utd and try to surprise Mourinho, says Rummenigge

The German midfielder is being tipped to stay at Old Trafford and try to impress the new coach after an unimpressive first season in the Premier League with the Red Devils

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge does not expect Bastian Schweinsteiger to leave Manchester United in favour of a return to the Bundesliga.

Schweinsteiger left Bayern for United ahead of last season, but failed to live up to the high expectations at Old Trafford, partially due to ongoing injury problems.

Recent reports suggest he is not part of new manager Jose Mourinho’s plans and could be on the move again, but Rummenigge would be hugely surprised if the experienced midfielder were to move back to Germany.

“I am 100 per cent convinced that Schweinsteiger will not return to Germany,” Rummenigge was quoted as saying by TZ.

“Bayern Munich are his club and he would never play for another Bundesliga club. I would be hugely surprised if that were to happen.

“I can see him stay at Manchester United and try to achieve their goals under a new coach. Maybe he could surprise Mourinho.

“Either way, Bastian has had an amazing career. Nothing can change that.”

Schweinsteiger, 31, has a contract with Manchester until June 2018.
