  • Jürgen Klopp comments on the attack

Former BVB-coach Jürgen Klopp made a few comments during a Liverpool press conference on Thursday morning. He was visibly concerned about the team and his many friends that he still has with the club.

Here are his comments: "I know exactly the road. A lot of my friends were in the bus. I was on the way home from Melwood and Matt called me and told me something happened. I was really concerned, scared for them. In the first moment it was a bit of relief, then you hear the more information you get the more serious it got.

I had contact with people but I didn’t want to bother them with my silly questions. I was waiting with the rest of the world. The last thing I thought about was the game.

…I was really proud of Borussia Dortmund. When they played the game they tried to give the best. I saw the faces of my former players and I saw the shock in their eyes and that was really, really hard."

  • Emma visits Marc Bartra

The Borussia Dortmund mascot Emma visited Marc Bartra in the hospital, it is goo to see that Bartra is seemingly ok given the circumstances. We all wish him a speedy recovery and all our thoughts are with the Spaniard.

Daily Buzz: No question or topic today, just a personal story if I may. I was in Dortmund the last couple days to see the game and have to commend both fan-sections for how they reacted to all of this. There was no sort of panic after the news hit of what happened on Tuesday and the fans just left calmly. Most of them went to the city to different bars to watch Juve-Barca and talk to each other. Even though the circumstances are sad, it was beautiful to see BVB and Monaco-fans interact in the city after the game got postponed. I personally talked to a few of them and had some interesting conversations. The #bedforawayfans initiative was an incredible idea and a beautiful display of humanity in a difficult situation.
