JURGEN KLOPP HAS expressed his pride at how his former club Borussia Dortmund performed in their rescheduled Champions League fixture last night, just 24 hours after the team bus was caught up in an explosion.
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.
Dortmund's current coach, Thomas Tuchel, said late yesterday his team had felt ignored by Uefa over the decision to reschedule the match so quickly.
Now, according to German journalist Freddy Röckenhaus, Dortmund players were shaken further ahead of their rearranged game as further details of the explosions emerged. "We were told by text message that the decision had been made in Switzerland [where UEFA is based]. Because last night I didn't realize what happened, and when I was at home and my wife and my son were waiting in front of the door, there I felt how lucky we were", the visibly shaken Sahin told former Norway worldwide Jan Aage Fjortoft, now a journalist. "But in all parts of life we can only give 100 per cent and I'm sure everyone is doing this to give you the best security you can have".
"I know football is very important, we love football, we suffer with football and I know we earn a lot of money, we have a privileged life".

Now the MOF can only absorb 20 percent of its weight in water but Yaghi and his team hope to double its efficiency in the future. On the other hand, water molecules stick to its interior surfaces, gathering in groups of eight to form tiny cubic droplets.
Clearly missing Bartra in defense and possibly still shocked by the attack on their bus, Dortmund conceded two goals in the first 35 minutes. "You read the whole time of an attack on our bus". We are outside of the bus, Marc [Barta] gets driven away in an ambulance, and we are informed about the decision.
Germany's Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere had said it was important for the match to go ahead: "we cannot make the mistake of being intimidated". We are people who have families, who have kids in the house.
After the match, Tuchel said his players had wanted more time to recover from the previous day's attack. "We want to help every player to overcome his inner conflict".
Questions were raised whether Dortmund were in the right frame of mind to play the match after defender Marc Bartra sustained in injury on his arm during the blast.
"It is very hard to think to go and play football. The players had the choice not to play but no one chose this option".
