Bayern Munich manager, Julian Nagelsmann, has disclosed that he has been getting death threats from fans after his team crashed out of Champions League.
Bayern, Alphonso Davies’ club, were knocked out of the Champions League recently after a 2-1 aggregate loss to Villarreal in the quarterfinals.
The German champions lost 1-0 away in the first leg before they played a 1-1 draw in the second leg at the Allianz Arena.
While talking about the sad development, Nagelsmann said: “I know I will always get criticism from all sides – that’s normal and I can deal with it.
“But with 450 death threats on Instagram, it’s not so easy.”
Nagelsmann’s team sits nine points clear in the Bundesliga, and they are likely to retain their title.
He added: “If people want to kill me that’s one thing, but they also attack my own mother, who doesn’t even care about football.
“I don’t understand it. As soon as they turn off the TV, people forget all decency. And they think they are the ones in the right, that’s the crazy thing.”
When asked whether he wants to take legal action, he said: “I would never be done with it. I get them after every single game, regardless of whether we win or lose.
“There are more death threats when we play with a back three than when we play with a back four, and obviously a few more whenever we lose.”
