A death threat was delivered to three Bayern Munich players by a letter. The death threat reportedly names Robert Lewandowski, Manuel Neuer, and Serge Gnabry. The letter is currently under Police’s jurisdiction. The police are now looking over the case as they try to decode the writer of the letter.

The letter was delivered to St. Pauli in Hamburg on January 12th. In Hamburg, the case has been referred to the Criminal Police Office, as it is within its jurisdiction.

The Death Threat recieved by Bayern Munich players said: “Save the league, save football. Fire and death to the dirty Bayern pigs.”

“Save the league, save football. Fire and death to the dirty Bayern pigs” is the message delivered through the letter. Bayern Munich have been dominating the league for the last 9 years and are on the verge of continuing that streak. Their dominance has left little hope amongst the German fans. Their dominance has allowed them to buy rising talents within the league itself. The competition within the league has been on the decline for the last few years.

The gap between their arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund has also increased significantly with Dortmund hardly challenging for the title anymore. Meanwhile, Bayern weakened RB Leipzig by signing their star defender Upamecano and manager Julian Naggelsmann. They have left little scope for other teams to compete at the highest level.

There is an investigation underway to determine whether the letter contains fingerprints or DNA. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich are yet to make a statement regarding this letter. The degree of seriousness is yet to be determined as the case is still under investigation. However, the players expect to be cautious in their approach moving forward. The letter also contained threats directed at Bundesliga officials. Bundesliga officials are also complying with the police. We await a final verdict about the letter.
