Germany still hunting those behind Dortmund bus attack

Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel said his team felt ignored by the football authorities

Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel said his team felt ignored by the football authorities

The talent evaluator was in the crowd for Dortmund's 3-2 first leg home loss to AS Monaco in the Champions League quarterfinals on Wednesday.

The roadside blasts left Dortmund's Spanish global Marc Bartra and a policeman injured, with the bombs "containing metal pieces" detonating minutes after the team bus set off to a planned Champions League game against Monaco on Tuesday night.

"I'm pretty sure the people who make the decision afterwards, if they had been in the bus they would not have played the game", Klopp told a news conference in Liverpool. We wanted to have a bit more time to deal with it. We are outside of the bus, Marc [Barta] gets driven away in an ambulance, and we are informed about the decision. We will not forget it.

"We have a very tight fixture list", he said on the club's website. The UEFA spokesperson said the governing body was in touch with both teams and had not received any information that either of the teams were not ready to play.

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

"I wish him the best recovery possible", said Guardiola. Until I was on the pitch in the second half, I did not think about football to be honest.

"I know we earn a lot of money and have a privileged life but we are human beings. (On Tuesday) night we felt it".

UEFA official Giorgio Marchetti told CNN Sport Wednesday he had encountered "nothing of this nature" before.

"Footballers and clubs go right down to the last minute in terms of preparation". The ex-Manchester United captain admitted his admiration for the Dortmund players for putting on a good performance in an entertaining game and claimed they deserved great credit.

"It's really, really hard to find a date in this really tight schedule but I think everyone would have understood if they said they did not want to play it".

However, "so far the investigation has turned up no evidence that the suspect participated in the attack", they said in a statement.

She went on to state the importance of all German states working to reach the same security level, specifically noting that "North Rhine-Westphalia, for example, practices, regrettably, no random police checks".

Even the commentators calling the match on TV were raving over the immediate impact the youngster had on Dortmund's play.

German prosecutors, however, seek arrest warrant for 26-year-old over alleged links with ISIL.

Merkel's interview came just days after the Borussia Dortmund football team's bus was targeted in a bomb attack which injured one player and one policeman.
