Borussia Dortmund’s Marc Bartra has been injured after three explosions close to the team bus. The Dortmund Twitter page confirmed that Bartra was the player hurt, and wished him a speedy recovery.
Borussia Dortmund Chief Executive – Hans-Joachim Watzke recorded a video describing the events that occured and current state of the team.
“The whole team is in a state of shock, you can’t get pictures like that out of your head.”
“I hope the team will be in a position to be able to compete tomorrow on the pitch.”
“In a crisis situation like this, Borussia pulls together.”
Bartra is reportedly “OK but in shock” after he suffered “superficial” cuts to his hands.
The first-leg match was postponed and will now be played on Wednesday at 18:45 local time (16:45 GMT).
Officers said the devices were detonated outside the bus but appealed for internet users to refrain from “rumours and speculation.” They thanked fans for “calm and prudent” departure from the stadium after it was announced the match had been postponed.
It’s believed security is being stepped up ahead of Leicester City’s clash with Atlético Madrid tomorrow.
