Borussia Dortmund thank Monaco supporters for their reaction to news of bus explosion

Monaco fans were seen and heard chanting the names of Dortmund as news filtered through...


Understandably, news of an explosion near to the Borussia Dortmund team bus caused a great deal of concern ahead of the team’s Champions League game with Monaco.

Thankfully, nobody appears to have been seriously hurt by the incident, although Dortmund’s Marc Bartra was taken to hospital with what are described as being ‘superficial’ injuries.

After confirmation that the game has been postponed until Wednesday, Dortmund’s official Twitter account thanked the Monaco supporters that had gathered in Westfalenstadion’s away end when news of the explosion began to filter through to the stadium.

At a time when it was still unclear as to how serious the incident was, Monaco supporters were seen and heard chanting the name of their hosts.

A lovely touch by the Monaco supporters.
