All quotes by Thomas Tuchel on Borussia Dortmund bus attack

Reus has now scored twice in the league since his return and he also scored against Monaco. He is scoring crucial goals and is showing how much we were missing when he was unavailable. He gained a lot of confidence when he was recovering from injury during pre-season. His character has grown. I think Marco is ready to achieve great things. We had six players who never played in Munich before in the last game. It is a pressure that you cannot feel in a video session.feedback

It turns out that the players are very open, they also dare to show their feelings and talk about [the incident]. This is not usual, not normally. But this is a glue for us that we would not have otherwise. I am very satisfied that we are now in third place. And I am very satisfied with how we did it. We have earned the win, played a great away game. Through the course of the game, we have completely put ourselves in trouble. Afterwards, however, to show such a reaction and to dominate so much is great. The team deserves a compliment.feedback

We had the feeling we were treated as if a beer can had hit our bus.feedback

I'm convinced that the solving of the case will be very important for everyone of us. I believe that it's very important for us to know the background of the attack. I can only speak for myself: I personally am dealing well, but I do not dare to speak for my players here. I cannot expect the same from my players. I cannot expect everyone else to deal as I am, which is why we have to be very careful in how we criticise the players. We have to differentiate between the sporting and the human aspect when and if we utter criticism.feedback

The Gladbach game can be considered not detached from the events. We also have to regard the minutes we played and the already straining mental pressure of a Champions League quarter-final.feedback

Since I'm yet to talk with the doctor, I assume that everyone is tired, but healthy.feedback

Unfortunately we didn't have the quality, energy or the luck to get into the semi-finals.feedback

It was a wonderful coming together with our public, who have a real feel for such situations, which isn't the case anywhere else.feedback

We played very courageously in every phase. We had good charisma on the field.feedback

After the whistle and in front of the south stand, that was a great gesture from the team.feedback

Marco Reus we changed just as a precaution, which was agreed beforehand. Sven Bender had to come off. His thigh muscles were tight and the risk was too great.feedback

Sven Bender had to come off. His thigh muscles were tight and the risk was too great. I had the impression today that we have all learned to deal with these feelings. I heard yesterday [Friday] from a professional that there is probably a threshold of two to three days to become emotionally stabilised. So I think for the players it is becoming easier to distract themselves if they can stand on the pitch and play.feedback

We were informed by text message. To decide things in Switzerland when we are affected did not feel good. At the very least, it makes you feel powerless.feedback

It was surreal, you try to help, hope to get to safety and try to calm down.feedback

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

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

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

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

Basically, we had the feeling that we were being treated as if a beer can had hit our bus, and half an hour later the decision was there that (it would be) tomorrow at 6.45pm. That gives you a feeling of powerlessness. We were not attacked on the field by an opponent; we were attacked from inside the bus as men. Of course this has an effect and it was a terrible experience for all of us. We wanted to have a bit more time to deal with it. We didn't get the time.feedback

The team wanted so badly a bit of time to deal with it so we were in our best shape because the dream is to go to the semi-finals in Europe. We had the feeling today everybody that we are not in the best shape, not focused enough for football. Who will blame us for that? Nobody. Everybody has the right to deal with it the way he wants to. If you want to talk about it, talk. If you want to be silent, be silent. If you need a hug, I hug you or find someone who hugs you at home.feedback

It's all different characters and it was very inspiring to see how we dealt with it in the second half. We made a good second half. The game is over now and it feels a bit weird.feedback

We were informed by text message that UEFA were making this decision. We would have liked more time to take stock. This gives you the feeling of impotence, that we have to keep functioning and nothing else matters.feedback

The situation is absurd. We only had 15 players available in the squad. We would have wanted to have more time to digest all of this. We did not get this time. We have to live with the fact that the match was scheduled. It's about our dream, our big dream, and the squad did not have the feeling they could make the difference in the small situations.feedback

Every player has the right to deal with it in his way. The team did not feel in the mood, in which you must be for such a game. We let the players choose if they wanted to play. But this morning, we found that the training had done good, that it had made us think of something else. We were attacked as men and we tried to solve the problem on the ground. Everyone has their own way of reacting to events. The players had the choice not to play but no one chose this option. There are players who can easily deal with what's happened and others who worry more - very mixed feelings.feedback

It was very difficult for the team to focus on the game. We let the players decide if they wanted to play today. But we noticed that training did us good.feedback

We would have wished for more time to process this. But we try to divert ourselves as best we can.feedback
