Bartra has since posted on social media to confirm he is doing "much better" after the operation prior to his side losing the rescheduled match 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Bartra was hit by shrapnel during the attack as the bus left the team hotel for the Champions League match against Monaco and taken to hospital, and has had surgery on his right hand.

Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel said after the game on Wednesday that his team had not been ready to play and had found out about the rescheduling after receiving a text message from Switzerland, where Uefa is based.

Borussia Dortmund players had to, though, less than 24 hours after a bomb attack on their team bus. "We have to find a way to deal with it".

Tuchel said: "It's a four-week break [for Bartra]".

However, they were seeking an arrest warrant to keep the 26-year-old Iraqi national in detention over allegedly having been a "member of the Islamic State group" in Iraq.

"The pain, the panic and the uncertainty of not knowing what was going on, or how long it would last ..."

"The Dortmund players spoke beautifully after the game", added Caulfield, who has worked as a sports psychologist with clubs in the Premier League and Sky Bet Championship.

"If you are not in the bus you can not imagine how it is exactly", he said, adding that he understood the views of both sides and it had been hard to find another date. Pride. I look at it and feel proud thinking of all the harm they wanted to cause and that it ended only in this.

In the first half on Wednesday it appeared the events had taken their toll as Monaco surged into a two-goal lead through Kylian Mbappe's opener and a Sven Bender own goal.

"I'm pretty sure the people who make the decision afterwards, if they had been in the bus they would not have played the game", Klopp told a news conference in Liverpool.

'UEFA was in touch with all parties on Wednesday and never received any information which suggested that any of the teams did not want to play'.

Dortmund midfielder Nuri Sahin was visibly emotional speaking to reporters after the game.

"These days when I look at my wrist, swollen and badly wounded, you know what I feel?"

"What will stay in history is not the result, but what happened last night", Jardim said.
