Roman Bürki on what it was like on the Dortmund bus

Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Bürki was not expected to start for the Bundesliga side against Monaco, but he is the reserve goalkeeper for Tomas Tuchel’s team.

The 26-year-old has played 21 games for Dortmund in the Bundesliga this season and spoke to Swiss newspaper Blick in the aftermath of the bus explosion.

Bürki said: “We left the hotel at 7:15 pm and went down the street. The bus turned to the main road, when there was a huge boom, a real explosion. I sat in the back row next to Marc Bartra, who was hit by fragments of the broken back disc.”

The Swiss keeper continued: “After the bang, we all ducked in the bus & who could, got on the ground. We didn’t know if more explosions could happen. The police were quick on the spot, we were safe. We’re all shocked – nobody thought of a football match at this time.”

Monaco fans hailed for reaction to Borussia Dortmund bus explosion news.
