Embarrassing Footage Shows Bayern Munich's TV Channel Laughing After Being Handed 'Manageable Draw' Against Villarreal

Bayern Munich have been forced to eat a sizeable slice of humble pie after being knocked out of the Champions League by underdogs Villarreal.

Unai Emery’s side stunned the German giants on Tuesday night, drawing 1-1 at the Allianz Arena to progress to the semi-finals of the competition with a 2-1 aggregate win.

Trailing 1-0 from the first leg in Spain, Bayern levelled the tie through Robert Lewandowski and looked to be in complete control of the second leg.

But a late goal from Villarreal substitute Samuel Chukwueze would send the visitors through to the last four of the competition, where they will face either Liverpool or Benfica.

Villarreal’s Dani Parejo accused Julian Nagelsmann of lacking respect for the Spanish club after the Bayern Munich head coach claimed his side could have come up against a “more difficult” opponent when the draw was made.

“When the draw happened and Villarreal came out, the manager of Bayern, who I don’t know, I think he lacked respect for us and for football because he wanted to seal the tie in the first leg,” said Parejo.

“When you spit in the air, it tends to fall on you.”

Embarrassing footage has now resurfaced from Bayern Munich's official TV channel, which seemingly shows the club's complacent attitude towards facing Villarreal.

After watching the draw for the quarter-finals, Bayern's TV host grins before telling the club’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic: "Let’s put it this way: it's a very manageable draw."

Both men then laugh, while Salihamidzic appears to nod in agreement with the host.

Bayern and Nagelsmann are now facing a furious backlash from the club’s supporters in the wake of the surprise defeat, with some fans calling for the manager to be sacked.

“You clearly are not ready to be in charge of Bayern, and today we paid for it,” wrote one fan on Reddit.

“Even a coach at Bayern needs to have the Bayern mentality and JN showed he does not.”

Another added: “He should get sacked for this. Honestly, I know we go through a lot of coaches, but for a team that is 7th in La Liga and tied their last game, and will probably get slammed next round, it's pathetic.

“He had all the tools in front of him to do it. He should be fired on that alone.”
