"I Still Have Problems Sleeping" - Dortmund 'Keeper Reveals Strife After Bus Attack

Borussia Dortmund rounded off a harrowing week with a 3-1 victory at home Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday. After the game, the Dortmund team laid Marc Bartra's jersey on the pitch in tribute to the teammate injured in Tuesday's attack on their team bus as they made their way to the Westfalanstadion for a Champions League tie with Monaco.

The game ended up going ahead less than 24 hours later, with Dortmund losing 3-2 on an occasion in which they struggled to focus on football. After the game, Nuri Sahin gave an interview in which he seemed traumatised by the attack, offering proof that the game should not have been refixed so soon after the attack. Sahin's refrain, that "he will never forget the faces..." is haunting.

The fact that Dortmund players are struggling to deal with the attack is further borne out by comments from goalkeeper Roman Burki. The Swiss was sitting beside the injured Bartra in the attack, and revealed that he is struggling to sleep, as he told Swiss newspaper Der Bund. 

I still have problems sleeping.

That's the worst thing, that I can't sleep through the night. When I wake up, I'm glad that I'm in bed at home.

Burki also provided powerful testimony of his experience in the bus just hours after the attack.
