Marc Bartra, who was wounded in an attack on the team bus of German soccer club Borussia Dortmund Tuesday, April 11, 2017 said Friday April 14, 2017 the experience was the "hardest 15 minutes" of his life.

Just how was the decision taken to reschedule the Borussia Dortmund-Monaco game 24 hours after the Dortmund team bus was rocked by three explosions as it left the team hotel to the Dortmund stadium eight miles away?

The bombs exploded as the team made their way to Signal Iduna Park, leaving defender Marc Bartra needing surgery on an arm injury.

Speaking two days on from the incident, which police believe is linked to so-called Islamic State, Tuchel admitted to still feeling shaken up by the murder attempt on his and his players' lives.

"I needed to write and unburden myself and to settle everything so I can just think about getting 100 per cent as soon as possible".

I've always been told that when I get the ball, something has to happen.

Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel angrily accused European football federation UEFA of treating the bomb attack as if a "beer can" had been thrown and claimed they were informed by text message that they would have to play the game a day later.

"To the thousands and thousands of people, the media, all organisations, BVB and team-mates who have sent me your support and love. even the smallest gesture has filled me with the strength to ALWAYS move forward". I hope that was the last time. What's happening in Syria. hopefully the president of the United States, the presidents of Russian Federation and China, can intervene and find a solution, because if not we don't know where we'll end up. "Who doesn't live this can't understand how big it was for us".
