Crystal Palace star Andersen receives death threats after Nunez’s headbutt – Sporting Life

Crystal Palace defender Joachim Andersen has called on the Premier League for support after receiving “300-400” abusive messages – including death threats – on social media following Darwin Nunez’s headbutt on the defender.

Liverpool’s £85million man received his marching orders in the second half at Anfield when he was shown a straight red card by Paul Tierney following the moment of madness that took place right in front of the referee.

Video footage has since shown that Nunez tried to leave his mark on wind-up merchant Andersen, not once but twice before the incident that plagued Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with the Eagles.

Yet despite conceding he was out to annoy his opponent in his post-match interview, Andersen has since detailed his disgust at the barrage of abuse he has received in his Instagram inbox.

He wrote: “Got maybe 3-400 of these messages last night. I understand you support a team but have some respect and stop acting tough online.”

After sharing screenshots of the vile abuse, he added: “Hope @Instagram and the @PremierLeague do something about this.”
