Marc Bartra out for four weeks after Dortmund bus attack

21 April 2017, 06:58 | Andy Ferguson

"We were told by text message that the decision had been made in Switzerland [where UEFA is based]". We are outside of the bus, Marc [Bartra] gets driven away in an ambulance, and we are informed about the decision. We will not forget it.

According to BBC, the head of the Dortmund police officials said that the explosion on Signal Iduna Park was directly targeted to the players of the team. It is hard to speak about but only because in the world a lot of things happen in this moment, a lot of really difficult-to-understand things, and as smart human beings we all think about this. "We didn't talk much about what happened", Kilmer said. There is a feeling of helplessness.

Tuchel says the date was imposed on his team despite the fact that his players still felt shaken.

"What shocked us all was these are two good clubs and it's a lovely part of the world and you think "my word". The running of the game never favoured us.

"We were attacked as men and we tried to solve the problem on the ground".

However, Uefa denied that Dortmund had been forced to play.

The German side were defeated 3-2 by the French club in the first leg of their quarter-final on Wednesday, 24 hours after the scheduled game had been postponed. But I think everyone would have understood if they said they did not want to play it, we find a solution next week or whatever we can do.

"I am just happy to be alive, it was the worst day of my life", he added, referring to the night of the attack. We are people who have families, who have kids in the house.

"They [UEFA] have to understand that we are not animals".

Despite being deeply affected by the incident Klopp said it would have no effect on his work at Liverpool and preparations for Sunday's visit to West Bromwich Albion.

Ousmane Dembele pulled one back for Dortmund on 57 minutes, but Mbappe fired in his second of the game to leave Monaco as favourites to reach the last four despite Shinji Kagawa's late strike.

Dortmund midfielder Nuri Sahin admitted football was far from his mind, particularly in the opening 45 minutes. "When they told us "you're up tomorrow", we felt completely ignored". I sit next to (Marcel) Schmelzer and I will never forget his face. Fortunately, other players and staff inside the bus were not hurt. It is a very serious thing.

"I know that the football is very important, that it is about a lot and I knew we have to deliver here. In the end we made the best we could of the match".

Meanwhile, reports indicate that the tie was moved for Wednesday following the blast which left Dortmund defender Marc Batra injured, .

His sentiments were echoed by Dortmund defender Sokratis.

"It is hard for the Borussia players. A player is injured, but UEFA made a decision to play".

Aside from this, a letter near the crime scene was also recovered by the police and it is now checked for authentication to further find out the penetrator. One has been arrested.
