Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that he will be visiting the United States a few days before Bayern Munich travels ahead of their AUDI Summer Tour and participation in the International Champions Cup. Only, it's not really what you'd expect.

Ancelotti has revealed in an interview with Sky Sports News HQ that he will be playing a doctor aboard the Enterprise in the new movie Star Trek Beyond. The movie will be released in the USA three days before Bayern leave Germany.

So, how did Ancelotti land a part in what will surely be on the year's biggest films?

"The husband of actress Zoe Saldana is Italian and I have a good relationship with the family. They were in Vancouver to film the movie and they asked me to come and watch. I went, spoke to the director and he said 'I'll put you in - small part'."

He revealed that he will be appearing without any fancy makeup or prosthetics as a doctor aboard the USS Enterprise.
