Bayern coach gets 450 death threats after Champions League exit

Coach Julian Nagelsmann says he received 450 death threats after Bayern Munich suffered a shock Champions League quarter-final exit to Villarreal in midweek, reported dpa.

He receives such messages on social media "after every game actually, regardless if we win or lose," he told reporters on Friday.

Some threats are also directed towards his mother which is "quite wild," he added. "Of course you can report everything but then I would never be done.

"It doesn't matter to be me, people should write what they want," he said when asked how he deals with it. "I can't understand it."

Bayern will look to bounce back from their European exit away to Bundesliga strugglers Arminia Bielefeld on Sunday. They are nine points clear of second-placed Borussia Dortmund, who they then host next weekend.

"We have a clearly defined goal in mind now: to win our next two games and secure the title," said Nagelsmann.

Nagelsmann expects Lucas Hernandez and Kingsley Coman to miss out with "muscle problems" while Niklas Süle and Corentin Tolisso remain absent with illness and injury. Bouna Sarr, however, will be back in the squad.
