The German giants were knocked out of the competition after losing the first leg 1-0 and barely drawing the second leg on Tuesday in Munich, with Samuel Chukwueze‘s late equalizer putting the underdogs through to the semi-finals, where they will face Liverpool.

However, despite the sporting fallout from Bayern’s humbling defeat, Nagelsmann was singled out by fans.

The 34-year-old highlighted the amount of hatred he received on social media and the filthy texts he received ahead of the Bundesliga champions’ trip to Arminia Bielefeld on Sunday.

“I’m aware that I’ll face criticism from all sides at some point – that’s normal, and I’m prepared to deal with it.”

But it’s not easy with 450 death threats on Instagram,” Julian Nagelsmann said at a press conference. “It’s one thing if someone wants to kill me, but they also target my own mother, who doesn’t care about football.”

“I’m not sure what’s going on. People lose any sense of decency as soon as the television is turned off. And they believe they are in the right, which is the weird part.”

“I would never be done with it,” the German said when asked if he had considered legal action. Regardless of whether we win or lose, I get them after every game.”

When we play with a back three, there are more death threats than when we play with a back four, and obviously there are a couple more everytime we lose.” Bayern are nine points clear at the top of the table and are on track to win the Bundesliga for the tenth time in a row.

However, their early elimination at the hands of Unai Emery’s side has stained their campaign, as they were also eliminated from the DFB Pokal at the second round stage, blasted 5-0 by Borussia Monchengladbach.

I don’t really know what is coming towards me,” Naglesmann said on Wednesday. However, if we lose and are eliminated, this is unavoidable.
