Julian Nagelsmann

Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann has hit out on Thomas Muller following his side’s elimination from the Champions League.

Bayern was one of the favputite teams to make it to the semifinals of the competition after being paired by Villareal but the Bavarians entered the Tuesday game with desperateness to turn things around after the shock 1-0 loss in the first leg.

They went ahead with Robert Lewandowski’s strike at the start of the second half, which was set up by Thomas Muller. However, shortly after, the German playmaker missed an open header from Leroy Sane’s cross, which could have sealed the tie for the Bavarians and his coach wasnt happy.

“Thomas has to score that, you don’t get many of those. The first leg was the key, we lost the duel there, we didn’t play well. Today we did very well, tactically well. In terms of intensity, it was the best game in recent months. Need to score more goals but overall well done. Good counter-pressing, also a lot of intensity when running,” he said after the game.

To make matters worse, Unai Emery’s side found the equaliser in the 88th minute through Samuel Chukwueze to eliminate the Bundesliga giants from the competition.

Emery’s men await either Liverpool or Benfica in the semi-finals of the Champions League later this month.
