Carlo Ancelotti heaped praise on former Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola for the good luck message left by the Spaniard.
Guardiola, who is now Manchester City coach, was replaced by former Chelsea, Real Madrid and AC Milan boss Ancelotti - who believes himself and the Catalan have a good understanding.
When asked what Guardiola's message was, Ancelotti told Bild: "Good Luck! He wrote it in Italian and capital letters on the wall. That was very pleasant, we have a good relationship."
Regarding midfield maestro Mario Gotze, who has constantly been linked with a move to Tottenham, Liverpool and Dortmund, and new Bayern signing Renato Sanches, the Italian boss said: "I had a private chat with Gotze. I told him my opinion and he told me his. He knows also Bayern's opinion.
"I monitored several young players in the last months - one of them was Renato Sanches. When I talked to Bayern about him they already had all the information about him. We both absolutely agreed, that this is exactly the player we would need."
Ancelotti's reign at Bayern will begin with a friendly against Lippstadt on July 16, and then play Guardiola's City in Munich four days later.
