Bartra: I’m happy to be alive

Marc Bartra has described that he feels ‘happy to be alive’ following last year’s bomb attack on the Borussia Dortmund team bus.

The former Barcelona defender – who is heavily linked with a transfer to Real Betis – gave evidence in court on Monday regarding the attack in April last year before the Champions League clash with Monaco.

The Spain international was the only person injured as an explosion went off and a piece of shattered glass cut through his arm, requiring urgent medical attention.

“I have not processed the attack to this day,” Bartra told the court on Monday.

“I was so scared that I would die and I was scared that I would never see my family again – I’m happy to be alive.”
