Thomas Tuchel, Borussia Dortmund manager has criticised UEFA for rescheduling their match against Monaco less than 24 hours after a tragic incident.
The Dortmund team bus was struck by three explosions as the bus left the hotel for the Signal Iduna Park, with Marc Bartra sustaining a wrist injury.
Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke stated the club would not bow to terrorism, but it doesn’t seem to be a sentiment Tuchel shares.
“There are players who can easily deal with what’s happened and others who worry more – very mixed feelings,” Tuchel said.
“We wished we would have wished for more time to deal with what happened but someone in Switzerland decided we have to play.
“It’s not very fair. What happened yesterday happened to us as people. Every player has the right to start with a strange feeling.
“We’ve been left feeling a bit helpless by the decision. But professionals find solutions to problems. We are strong enough.”
