THOMAS MULLER felt the full wrath of furious Bayern Munich fans after he stole Serge Gnabry’s goal – only to be ruled out for offside.
The Germany striker stuck a leg out to knock in the former Arsenal man’s header in the 19th minute.
Muller stole Gnabry’s goal then saw it ruled out for offside anyway
But there was really no need to, with the ball already having beaten Union Berlin keeper Rafal Gikiewicz.
The goal originally stood until it went to VAR, when Muller was clearly shown in an offside position.
It mattered little with Robert Lewandowski scoring from the spot in the 40th minute of a game they totally dominated in everything but score.
But that did not stop watchers from venting their anger at Muller.
One said: “Of course I have Serge Gnabry first goalscorer. Of course piece of s*** Muller tries to steal it offside.”
A fellow user wrote: “Glad that Munich goal was disallowed, Muller had no need to try and steal the goal.”
Another comment read: “Our Bundesliga bet of the day could have come in after just 15 minutes with Serge Gnabry heading the ball into the net but Thomas Muller tried to steal the goal as it was going into an empty net and was ruled offside!”
And it was Lewandowski who put Bayern in the driving seat.
Without ever hitting top gear, 31-year-old goal-machine purred back into action again yesterday, stroking home the first-half penalty which restored Bayern Munich’s four point lead at the top of the Bundesliga.
