Bayern boss Nagelsmann targeted with 450 death threats and mum attacked by sick trolls after shock Champions League exit

JULIAN NAGELSMANN has revealed he has received 450 death threats following Bayern Munich's Champions League exit at the hands of Villarreal.

And the 34-year-old has also declared that his mother has been targeted by sick trolls in the wake of the club's European Cup woe.

Bundesliga leaders Bayern were knocked out of the Champions League in the quarter-finals by Spanish side Villarreal on Tuesday night.

The Bavarian outfit went into the second leg trailing 1-0 after Arnaut Danjuma scored the game's only goal at El Madrigal.

Robert Lewandowski then put the German outfit level on aggregate in the return fixture with the game seemingly set for extra-time.

But Unai Emery's men silenced the Allianz Arena when Nigerian winger Samuel Chukwueze scored in the 88th minute to send his side into the last four.

And speaking ahead of Sunday's trip to Arminia, Nagelsmann, who replaced Hanski Flick in the dugout last year, discussed the abuse he has received this week.

He 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 was then asked whether he has considered taking legal action against those who regularly make threats to him and his family.

To which he remarked: "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."
