Last quote about Borussia Dortmund bus attack

Mauricio Pochettino
Of course, when you play you must keep your identity and compete. In the Champions League last season that disappointed us that we didn't compete but in these three games [against Borussia Dortmund, APOEL and Real Madrid] I think the team is more mature and we don't just play, we compete and that is most important.feedback

Normally I would be at the back with Marc Bartra, but that day I sat in the front, because there was a free space.feedback

Jean Michael Seri

I want to be optimistic and think that there are still options [to join Barcelona before the transfer window closes]. Let the two clubs talk quietly again and come to an agreement. We are not talking about any club, where you are going to sign for money. I am wanted by big European clubs such as Juventus, PSG, Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool... For example, Roma have made several offers. Roma is a good option but nothing compares to Barca. I'm going to say one thing very clear: I'm not afraid to join Barcelona. I have been a fan since I was a kid and I know the size of this great club.feedback

Marc Bartra

I know this from everything he has brought us last year [at Dortmund]. He is a very good player but he needs patience. He is very young and he cannot be compared to anyone – Neymar is among the best three players in the world.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

This is not Germany. In Germany, Bayern Munich starts winning the league in the summer. They go to Borussia Dortmund every year and buy their best player. One day they go there and [Robert] Lewandowski. The next year, they go there, Mario Götze. The next year, Mats Hummels.feedback

Mats Hummels

Oh, I think right now we are not there yet (to take on Borussia Dortmund). But we will be (ready) next week because we have two more games upcoming with eight Bayern players finally coming again from injury and vacation. So I think we will be much stronger next week. So there are a few things we have to improve of course but it's good that it's the pre-season now and we will work on that.feedback

Uli Hoeness

Leipzig will play a good season again, but the first challenger will surely be Borussia Dortmund.feedback

Hans-Joachim Watzke - Borussia Dortmund

Sometimes Borussia Dortmund have to plan strategies. It can't be that managers of other clubs just say, Oh well we would like to have this kind of player.feedback

Marc Bartra

Of course I hope Aubameyang stays. He is important not only for his goals, but also for the spirit of the team. I have experienced so much in this one year. It's like a family to me. That other clubs are interested in me shows that I am doing well. I'm pleased with the recognition I've received. But I think we will celebrate many wonderful experiences together in Dortmund.feedback

Marc Bartra

After the DFB-Pokal victory and the party in Berlin, then the wedding in Spain, it was the best summer of my life.feedback

Sven Bender

I am very grateful that Borussia Dortmund has respected my will, despite their unconditional desire to keep me. I feel that as a great appreciation.feedback

Mesut Ozil

In terms of potential, Schalke is the number three for me in Germany after Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.feedback

Mino Raiola

Balotelli trusts me. I am picky and he knows it. Will he remain at Nice? We will see. He is wanted by Borussia Dortmund and Marseille.feedback

Mino Raiola

His performances at Nice have been positive, though Mario has to give much more because he doesn't have many more chances. I am picky and he knows it. Will he remain at Nice? We'll see. He's wanted by Borussia Dortmund and Marseille.feedback

Marc Bartra

When the attack happened, I thought I would never be able to play again. I could not move in the first five or 10 minutes and I could not hear anything. When the doctor told me after the surgery that everything was going well and I was going to be able to play again in a month, that was indescribable and the most beautiful news. What occurs in so many places around the globe makes me sad and it's hard to accept or understand.feedback

Marc Bartra

When the doctor told me after the surgery that everything was going well and I was going to be able to play again in a month, that was indescribable and the most beautiful news. I feel stronger today than ever before. I was very sad that such a thing could happen – it was a few damn difficult weeks – but now we can all enjoy this victory. I can only use good words about Thomas Tuchel. Thanks to him I could play at a high level. I think he did a good job in general.feedback

Marc Bartra

We might not have been so consistent in the Bundesliga, but we played well in the Champions League and won the cup.feedback

Daniel Farke

I'm very excited to be here, it's a great adventure for me. I was really looking forward to coming here and seeing all of the people and learning even more about the club. I had a really good time with Borussia Dortmund, but Stuart Webber has told me all about Norwich City, its traditions and history, and I know what a great club it is. The more I know about Norwich City, the more excited I get. I'm very glad to be here and can't wait to get started.feedback

Marc Bartra

It's one of the best moments of my professional career. I've suffered so much through this negative experience.feedback

Carlo Ancelotti

There is no police around the stadium apart from that what unfortunately happened to the bus of Borussia Dortmund. The fact all the stadiums are full, the people really like football here.feedback

Ralph Hasenhuttl

Hopefully we solidify our place near the top of the table, but to be champions in Germany you have to hope that the best team, Bayern Munich, make mistakes. But Bayern have not done this recently. So for teams like Borussia Dortmund, in the last few years it's been a hard nut to crack. For us it is so much more difficult to be champions. If we could be runner-up this season, it would be a sensational campaign and we are proud of what we have done this year regardless. In Germany there are so many clubs who have much more options and possibilities than we have.feedback

Thomas Tuchel - Borussia Dortmund

Andre Schurrle and Marc Bartra are [back] running [in training]. Sebastian Rode returns to the squad. We are very happy about this, he is training at a very high level.feedback

Nuri Sahin

Everybody knows I feel good at Dortmund - in town, in the stadium and of course with our fans. Borussia Dortmund is the club of my heart.feedback

Michael Reschke

The best players are already at Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico [Madrid], the big Premier League clubs, Bayern, Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain.feedback

Marc Bartra

I took a look around and then I just thought I had to go for it myself. Then I don't really remember what I did. I didm't see anything, just that the ball was flying into the goal.feedback

Marc Bartra

It won't be easy in the next games, either. The events of this week are very difficult to forget.feedback

Marc Bartra

They are my everything, the reason I struggle to overcome obstacles and this has been the worst of my life, an experience I would not want anyone in this world [to have]. I think the shock is decreasing more and more and, at the same time, it adds to the desire to live, to fight, to work, to laugh, to cry, to feel, to love, to believe, to play, to train, to continue to enjoy my people, loved ones, companions, my passion, to defend, to smell the grass as I do before the game starts and motivate me. The only thing I ask is for everyone to live in peace and to leave behind the wars.feedback

Hans-Joachim Watzke - Borussia Dortmund

I briefly considered whether we should leave the competition completely. But then it would have been a victory for the perpetrators. If a player isn't able to play then he can tell the coach, and I also said that there would have been complete understanding and every form of support from us. The players have the opportunity to deal with the psychological side of the attack with experts and to get any help from us. They did not want to hurt Borussia Dortmund explicitly. It was an attack on Germany.feedback

Marc Bartra

I look at it proudly, thinking that all the damage they wanted to do to us on Tuesday stayed in this [injury]. They [my family] are my everything, the reason I struggle to overcome obstacles and this has been the worst of my life, an experience I would not want anyone in this world [to have]. The pain, the panic and the uncertainty of not knowing what was going on, or how long it would last... were the longest and hardest 15 minutes of my life.feedback

Juergen Klopp

When you go back and look at my teams with [Borussia] Dortmund in 2012 or 2013 it was not all pressing and counter-pressing, we played football and won games and all that stuff. This season [we lost] not because we didn't have a plan B but it was about having difficulties in different games. We will mark the occasion as a team. I know, at the wish of the families, this is the first year where the service doesn't take place at Anfield. There is a memorial at Melwood with the names of the 96 people who lost their lives. We, as a team, will pause, show our respect and remember them.feedback

Marc Bartra

The only thing I ask, THE ONLY THING, is that we ALL live in peace and leave wars behind. These days when I look at my wrist, swollen and broken, do you know what I feel? Pride. I look at it and feel proud thinking of all the harm they wanted to cause and that it ended only in this. Thank you to the doctors, nurses, physios, and everyone who help me recover and help my wrist be back to perfect.feedback

Marc Bartra

To the thousands and thousands of people, the media, all organisations, BVB and team-mates who have sent me your support and love... even the smallest gesture has filled me with the strength to ALWAYS move forward.feedback

Marc Bartra

I needed to get this off my chest and put it behind me so I can be at 100 per cent as soon as possible!feedback

The reason I struggle to overcome obstacles. When I look at my wrist, swollen and badly wounded, you know what I feel? Pride. I look at my wounds and think that all the damage they wanted to do to us on Tuesday stayed within in this [injury].feedback

Marc Bartra

I have a continued desire to follow my passion, to defend, to smell the grass on the field as I do before my games. I want to see the stands again full of fans who love our sport, who fill our team with emotions that allow us to forget the increasingly crazy world we live in.feedback

I needed to write and unburden myself and to settle everything so I can just think about getting 100 per cent as soon as possible.feedback

To the thousands and thousands of people, media, organisations of all kinds, the club and colleagues, who have given me your support and affection – as small as it may be – has filled me with incredible strength to continue on and on.feedback

Thomas Tuchel - Borussia Dortmund

We have to find a way to deal with it, but I am not sure how. We all have to deal with it in our own way. We all experienced the attack in a different way. A lot of players did not sleep. Some of them only really realised what had happened when they returned to their families.feedback

Thomas Tuchel - Borussia Dortmund

But you are the best sportsman if you have no worries. Football is not as important as our families, living in peace, feeling safe and being healthy.feedback

Thomas Tuchel - Borussia Dortmund

Bartra will be out of action for about four weeks. But he would have liked to play on Saturday if he could. You call your family to say you are alright. You just want to get as far away as possible. This is the first day to really process it. Wednesday was like walking through a cloud. Dealing with this is a process that will go on for days and weeks. It comes and goes in waves. Today [Thursday] has been a bad day for me.feedback

Thomas Tuchel - Borussia Dortmund

I am sure the whole situation will have an impact on the upcoming games, but we are not concerned. We have to accept it and deal with it. Time will help. We do not want to bring every match from here on into the context of what happened on Tuesday. That would get us nowhere.feedback

Marc Bartra

A lot of strength — we are with you.feedback

Kylian Mbappe

We have suffered all through what has happened. We heard there was an explosion, then more news. We worried, we feared the worst. I tried to call Ousmane [Dembele]; he explained the situation to me. I told him I was with him and his team, that we were all together. We are all with Bartra. We know that it is difficult for him, as for all the players of Dortmund. It is destabilising but we are professionals, we must get accustomed to everything, even in the most extreme conditions. Today was extreme, and we tried to get to the level of a quarter-final of Champions League.feedback

Hans-Joachim Watzke - Borussia Dortmund

Bartra is feeling better today, however, but he will be kept under observation for some hours more in the hospital before being discharged. We're not just playing for ourselves tonight (against Monaco). We're playing for everyone, whether they're Borussia Dortmund, Bayer or Schalke. We want to show that terror and hate shall never determine our actions. And of course, we're playing for Marc Bartra, who wants to see his team win.feedback

Marc Bartra

Hello everybody! As you can see I am doing much better. Thank you everybody for all your support and your messages! All my strength to my team mates, supporters and fans and to BVB for tonight's match! #HejaBVB.feedback

Hans-Joachim Watzke - Borussia Dortmund

Bartra was injured, on his hand and his arm, but nothing that would be life-threatening. The team is in complete shock. Our task now is to process this experience as professionally as possible because the match is taking place in less than 24 hours. That's our job.feedback

Marc Bartra

I do not regret leaving Barcelona. It was very satisfying to be part of Barcelona, but I feel very excited to be able to keep developing [at Borussia Dortmund]. All my strength to my teammates, supporters and fans, and to the team for tonight's match!feedback

Aleksander Ceferin

I was deeply disturbed by the explosions which occurred tonight in Dortmund. The decision taken to postpone the UEFA Champions League match between Borussia Dortmund and AS Monaco was the correct one since we must always prioritise the safety and security of all fans, team officials and players. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the representatives of the two clubs, the local authorities, and the supporters for their cooperation on the ground.feedback

Hello everybody! As you can see I am doing much better. Thank you everybody for all your support and your messages! All my strength to my team mates, supporters and fans and to @bvb09 for tonight's match!feedback

Hans-Joachim Watzke - Borussia Dortmund

The BVB family was particularly strong when it had to cope with difficult situations. This is perhaps the most difficult situation we have had in the past decades. And I am sure that we will show ourselves as BVB as strong and closed as never before! We do not just play for us today. We play for everyone. No matter whether Borussia, Bayer [Leverkusen] or Schalke. We want to show that terror and hatred can never determine our actions. And of course we play for Marc Bartra, who wants to see his team win. I just called the team in the cabin to show the company that we did not bend before terror.feedback

Hans-Joachim Watzke - Borussia Dortmund

I have just told the team in the dressing room to show society that we will not bow to terror. This is perhaps the most difficult situation we have had in the past decades and I am sure that we will show ourselves as BVB as strong and united as never before. We do not just play for us. We play for everyone. No matter whether Borussian, Bavarian or Schalke. We want to show that terror and hatred can never determine our actions. And of course we play for Marc Bartra, who wants to see his team win. We ask all BVB fans to support our team with full energy for 90 minutes.feedback

Gregor Lange

We had to assume, and assumed right from the start, that this was a targeted attack against the team of Borussia Dortmund. We are preparing for a major operation tomorrow, and we will do everything humanly possible to ensure that the match tomorrow can occur safely.feedback

Angela Merkel

Our thoughts today are with the players ... with Borussia Dortmund, with the fans. And we hope that it can be a peaceful and good game.feedback

Sascha Fligge

I can only say that shortly after leaving the car park there was a detonation … the team heard a loud bang. Marcel Schmelzer said to me, Why is someone throwing a stone again on game day?' We had that happen, I think, during an away game in Cologne that a big stone hit the window. But it transpired quickly for the players – especially because Marc Bartra loudly called for attention for obvious reasons – that it wasn't a stone. The players had quite different reactions, some threw themselves to the floor, others simply ducked and everyone was totally shocked.feedback

Hans-Joachim Watzke - Borussia Dortmund

The team and the coaches are of course in shock. We must now channel it in some way. It will not be easy to get it out of our mind. In such a crisis situation, all of Borussia Dortmund will pull together. I think the team will feel it tomorrow. When the squad moved from the hotel parking lot to Wittbrauckerstrasse, three explosive devices were triggered there. Marc Bartra has been taken to the hospital. He hurt himself on the hand. We then contacted the security delegates and colleagues from Monaco. The game will be played tomorrow at 18:45CET. The tickets remain valid.feedback
