Heynckes says death threats forced him to quit

BERLIN, Feb 1 (Reuters) - Borussia Moenchengladbach coach Jupp Heynckes has said threats to his life contributed to his decision to resign as coach of the Bundesliga club.

'I received three death threats in recent months,' Heynckes was quoted as saying in an interview with the Rheinische Post newspaper published on its website.

'They were so serious that I had to be accompanied by plain-clothes policemen in Bochum and Cottbus,' he added.

'Last weekend things reached such a level that I could no longer expect my wife to put up with it.'

Heynckes's quit on Wednesday after a goalless draw with Nuremberg the previous night left the club in the relegation zone, third from bottom with 16 points from 19 matches. They are now second from bottom after Wednesday's games.

Heynckes told the paper attacks on him personally in the media that had unsettled the players were also part of the reason for his decision to quit.

'I think that in this situation the best thing for the club and the team is that I step down and take the pressure of constant negative headlines away from the players,' he said.
