Julian Nagelsmann insists that he does not want to be included in the running to replace Carlo Ancelotti as Bayern Munich manager.

Hoffenheim boss Julian Nagelsmann has attempted to distance himself from the Bayern Munich job by insisting that he does not want to be linked to the vacant position.

The 30-year-old was instantly installed as the bookies' favourite to replace Carlo Ancelotti, who was sacked by the Bundesliga champions on the back of a 3-0 loss at Paris Saint-Germain.

Nagelsmann is understood to be a long-term target for Bayern, having worked wonders during his two years in charge at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena.

Despite previously hinting that he would be interested in returning "home" to Bavaria, however, the former 1860 Munich defender has played down suggestions that he is close to taking over at Bayern.

"Do not include me in the speculation," he told Sport1. "My media department has kept everything away from me."

Nagelsmann, under contract with Hoffenheim until 2021, has lost 13 of his 59 matches in charge of the club.
