‘People forget all decency’ – Julian Nagelsmann reveals death threats against his mother after Bayern Munich’s Champions League exit at Villarreal


Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann has revealed he received death threats following his side’s Champions League exit.

The German giants were knocked out of Europe’s premier club competition after suffering a 2-1 aggregate loss to Villarreal.

Bayern were clear favorites to progress against the Spanish side but an Unai Emery masterclass saw the La Liga side take on Liverpool in the semi-finals for a place in the showpiece stage at the Stade de France in Paris .

Nagelsmann largely enjoyed a decent first season in charge of Bayern, with the club nine points clear at the top of the Bundesliga, but they suffered a shock defeat in the German Cup second round after losing 5-0 against Monchengladbach.

Fan criticism is an integral part of a football manager’s life, but according to Nagelsmann things have now gone too far.

Speaking to the press, he said: “I know I will always receive criticism from all sides – it’s normal and I can deal with it.

“But with 450 death threats on Instagram, it’s not that 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,” Nagelsmann added.

” I do not understand. As soon as they turn off the TV, people forget all modesty. And they think they’re right, it’s madness.

When asked if he was considering legal action, he replied, “I will never get over it. I get them after every game, 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 little more each time we lose.”
