Joachim Andersen sent death threats after clash with Darwin Núñez | Crystal Palace
August 16, 2022
Crystal Palace defender Joachim Andersen has said death threats have been made to him and his family after he was headbutted by Darwin Núñez, who was subsequently sent off, in Monday’s 1-1 draw in the Premier League on Saturday. Anfield.
Núñez was shown a red card just before the hour when he faced Andersen to headbutt the Danish defender.
The result left Liverpool scoreless after two games and fans expressed their frustration by contacting Andersen on Instagram, where he highlighted the abusive messages he had received.
“I got maybe 3 to 400 of these messages last night. I understand you’re supporting a team, but have some respect and stop being tough online,” Andersen said before sharing screenshots of abuse and death threats in his inbox. “I hope Instagram and the Premier League do something about this.”
Nuñez’s red card will result in a three-match suspension and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who has a striker crisis with Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota injured, said he hoped the Uruguay international would learn from his mistake.
