Bayern Munich Manager, Julian Nagelsmann has received series of death threats on social media after Bayern crashed out of the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
The German champions lost 2-1 on aggregate to Villarreal in the quarter-final of the competition, with Nigeria’s Samuel Chukwueze scoring the decisive goal for the Yellow Submarine.
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.
“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.”
Nagelsmann is in his first season as Manager of Bayern, having taken over from Hansi Flick last summer.
The Bavarians are nine points clear in the Bundesliga and look set to retain their title.
