Thomas Muller Speaks Out Following His Kung Fu Kick On Tagliafico


Thomas Muller has apologised to Nicolas Tagliafico following his kung fu kick on the defender’s head from behind.

The German forward’s antics saw him earn a straight red in the match against Ajax at the Johan Cruijff Arena as Bayern Munich drew 3-3 in a dramatic encounter.

Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller has apologised to Ajax defender Nicolas Tagliafico for his kung fu kick on from behind on the Argentine defender’s head. His antics earned him a straight red as referee Clement Turpin sent him in for an early shower in a match which saw the two giants of European football earn a point each.

The German international said to his followers on Twitter, ‘I would like to apologise to Nico Tagliafico for yesterday’s incident,” he added, ‘It was unintentional. Get well soon.’

Bayern manager Niko Kovac admitted to the fact that Muller’s sending off was fair and also said that the match was an amazing one. He said, “The red card for Thomas was fair as well. He didn’t see the player but you have to be aware of your opponent coming at the ball at your back. Both penalty decisions correct. Both red cards correct. ‘The referee did well, except in the case of the goal that made it 3-3. I’m not a referee but I think it was offside.” Kovac added, “I think we were part of an amazing football game. Both teams played at a high level and played with a pressing style.”

Both the teams have advanced to the round of 16 in the Champions League and are waiting for their opponents to be picked in the draw which is to be held on Monday.
