Thomas Tuchel Says Club 'Ignored' Over Monaco Tie

Thomas Tuchel Says Club 'Ignored' Over Monaco Tie

As fans of the two sides expressed solidarity in a packed stadium, the quarter-final, first leg match was held in the western German city 24 hours later, with Monaco claiming a 3-2 win.

Central defender Marc Bartra was the only player injured during the explosions and earlier today, the Spanish footballer posted a message on Instagram confirming that he was much better and thanking everyone for their support. "Then it was very unclear how serious the injury of Marc Bartra was and what was behind this incident, that gives you a feeling of powerlessness", Thomas Tuchel, Borussia Dortmund's coach, told a news conference.

"We wished we would have had more time to deal with what happened, but someone in Switzerland decided we must play". "All of us do everything we can do", said Klopp when asked whether he was concerned about security in English football. Although we realise how big this competition is, one mustn't forget that we are still humans.

"It is a very bad feeling. At that time we did not know the reasons for this attack".

According to police, an explosion detonated as the bus was leaving the hotel where the team was staying to bring them to their Champions League game against Monaco.

J├╝rgen Klopp has said Uefa underestimated Tuesday's bomb attack on Borussia Dortmund when forcing his previous club to play their Champions League first-leg tie against Monaco less than 24 hours later.

"UEFA was in touch with all parties on Wednesday and never received any information which suggested that any of the teams did not want to play".

The suspect detained in Germany following the Dortmund bus attack has links to Islamic State, it has been revealed.

"I needed to write and get this off my chest and settle it so I can just think about getting back to 100 percent as soon as possible", he added.

"Minutes after the attacks, the only question was whether the game could go through or not".

"Of course, no one was thinking about football before the game and I believe that was obvious from the way it began".

"Until I was on the pitch in the second half, I didn't think about football, to be honest".

The announcement marked a setback for investigators, who have called the three blasts late Tuesday a "terrorist" attack and said they are focusing on suspects in the "Islamist spectrum".

Freiburg's coach, Christian Streich, came down on the other side of the debate, arguing that playing the match was part of a cause that was larger than reaching the semifinals.

But former German global Lothar Matthaeus said it was "irresponsible" to get the players to go through with the game so soon after the attack. "The Monaco team can not stay here, they also have a game at the weekend".
