Corentin Tolisso Can Replace Alonso At Bayern, Says Carlo Ancelotti

Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti has challenged new club-record signing Corentin Tolisso to become the club's new pass master following the retirement of Xabi Alonso.
The France international moved to the Allianz Arena from Lyon for N14.6b (£35million) last month, and was immediately viewed as a replacement for Alonso after the former Liverpool and Real Madrid midfielder called time on his career.
"Tolisso is a really good midfielder in our opinion. He was one of the best midfielders in the market," Ancelotti said on Saturday.

"He is a really complete midfielder, good passing, forward, really well positioned defensively and also in my opinion a lot of opportunity to improve.

 "He's still young, he did well in Lyon, but I think with us he can improve more. He's going to complete our midfield.

"Also I have to say that [Sebastian] Rudy is a really good signing because Rudy tactically is really good. We are going to have a lot of competition in this position. But with a lot of games I think all have the possibility to play.

"I think that Tolisso also has a good profile to replace a player like Alonso."
Tolisso signed a five-year contract at Bayern, keeping him with the club until 2022
