Mats Hummels has been impressed with the Italian defence during Euro 2016 so far.

Who can forget Giovanni Trapattoni's memorable outpouring of emotion as Bayern Munich coach in 1998?

With fellow Italian maestro Carlo Ancelotti ending his sabbatical to take over from Pep Guardiola at Bayern on July 1, the day before a mouth-watering Euro 2016 quarterfinal between heavyweights Italy and Germany -- it's an opportune time to look at the Italian influence on Bayern Munich during the years.
