More to life than football says Borussia Dortmund's Nuri Sahin

Thomas Tuchel insisted Borussia Dortmund "will not forget" UEFA's decision to make them play their Champions League game against Monaco less than 24 hours after a bomb attack targeted the team bus.

A policeman, who was on a motorcycle escorting the team bus, suffered trauma from the noise of the blasts, which shattered the bus windows.

Tuchel felt that UEFA had not taken the attack seriously enough and claimed "we weren't asked at all at any time" about whether to proceed with the game. I've had games where they've been delayed for certain reasons or called off and then you have to refocus on the game but I have never been on a coach where there has been explosions.

Three explosive devices went off near Dortmund's team bus as it was transporting players to their match with Monaco on Tuesday evening, causing defender Marc Bartra to require surgery to his arm and wrist.

Tuesday's match was rescheduled for 24 hours later and Monaco secured a 3-2 victory over Dortmund, who will next host Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

I was really concerned, scared for them.

"I saw the faces of my former players, saw the shock in their eyes and that was really, really hard, so I forgot the game again immediately, I only thought about them". "There is no golden way to deal with this because it was the first time for everyone". A spokeswoman for the federal prosecutors said on Friday there was no new information to give.

He offered condolences by him and on behalf of Iranians to President Assad on the death of civilians during U.S. missile attack. The decision undercut another campaign promise for Trump: his pledge to try to warm relations with Moscow.

"We felt completely passed over, it came down to "tomorrow, you're playing". I doubt they would have had any preparation or rest and to suddenly expect them to perform would have been a step too far. "We will play for everyone... we want to show that terror and hate can never determine our actions".

"We were not attacked on the field by an opponent; we were attacked from inside the bus as men", Tuchel said in a post-match broadcast interview with former Norway worldwide Jan Aage Fjortoft.

"On Saturday we try again".

"It is hard to speak about but only because in the world a lot of really difficult-to-understand things happen at this moment and as smart human beings we all think about this", he added.

"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.

"When I was on the bus (on Tuesday) night, I can't forget the faces".
