Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki has opened up on the effects the bomb explosion near the team bus has had on him.
The team had been on its way to play AS Monaco at its home stadium, the Signa Iduna Park, when three explosions rocked the team bus.
Burki told Swiss daily Der Bund: ”I still have problems sleeping. … That’s the worst thing, that I can’t sleep through the night. When I wake up, I’m glad that I’m in bed at home.”’
The match was postponed to the next day, and Burki ended up conceding three goals as Dortmund lost 2-3 to the visiting French side.
He said that, during Wednesday’s match, ”I noticed everything on the field a bit later, as if I had a veil in front of my eyes.”
Burki had been beside Marc Bartra on the bus, who was the only player injured in the explosions.
“The bus turned on the main road when there was suddenly a huge bang – a proper explosion,” he told Swiss media.
“The police were quickly on the spot and handled the situation. We were all in shock and no one was thinking about football anymore.
“I was sat next to Marc Bartra on the back row of the coach and he was injured because of the broken window.
“After the bang, we all ducked and those who could lay on the floor did so. We didn’t know what else would happen.”
It is still unknown who carried out the attack.
