But the 45-year-old was reportedly fearing for his life as he parked in the garage beneath his city apartment on Monday night.

Former Bayern Munich midfielder Van Bommel told police a man pointed a pistol at him and told him to get out of the car.

The panicked manager attempted to reverse out of the garage, crashing into a parked Mercedes and setting off the cars’ alarms.

The would-be robber fled amid the confusion.

Antwerp police have confiscated Van Bommel’s Porsche Panamera to check if criminals have fitted it with a tracking device.

Spokesman Wouter Bruyns said: “Our teams searched the area but they could not find a suspect.

“No one was injured in the incident.”

A tight-lipped Van Bommel admitted: “It was quite a shock, that’s for sure.”

The public prosecutor’s office has launched an investigation.

World Cup star Van Bommel also played for Barcelona, ​​​​AC Milan, PSV Eindhoven, Wolfsburg and Fortuna Sittard.

The midfielder with 79 caps went on to coach PSV and Wolfsburg before taking charge of Antwerp in May.

His squad includes former Premier League stars Toby Alderweireld, Vincent Janssen, Ritchie de Laet and Bjorn Engels.
