Jürgen Klopp has said Uefa underestimated Tuesday’s bomb attack on Borussia Dortmund http://www.rangersteamonline.com/Jaromir_Jagr_Jersey when forcing his previous club to play their Champions League first-leg tie against Monaco less than 24 hours later. European football’s governing body has been criticised for rescheduling the game for the day after three explosions struck the Dortmund team coach and put the defender Marc Bartra in hospital. Bartra will be fit again in about four weeks, the clubs said on Thursday. Dortmund bombs highlight challenge of combating modern terrorism acts Read more Klopp, Dortmund’s former coach of seven years, admitted he was scared for the safety of friends and former players on hearing news of the attack while driving home from Liverpool’s training ground. He also said he was proud of the team’s reaction as they were defeated 3-2 by Monaco at Signal Iduna Park. The Liverpool manager did not condemn Uefa’s decision outright, conceding the postponement Jeff Beukeboom Authentic Jersey had left the governing body in an awkward position, but believes the effect on Dortmund’s players was not taken into consideration. “I’m pretty sure if some of the people who made the decision had been on the bus they would not have played the game but when you are not on the bus you cannot really imagine how it was exactly,” he said. “But the game is over, it is done. What can I say? They have a few days to try to learn to live with it.” “Everyone can imagine it was a really difficult moment for me. I don’t know how often I have been in that hotel down the years. I know exactly where it is on that road and a lot of my friends were on the bus. I was on way home from Melwood and Matt [Liverpool’s press officer] called to tell me http://www.officialcelticsproshop.com/Isaiah_Thomas_Jersey that something happened on the bus and I tried immediately to get some information. “I was really concerned, scared for them [the players], scared for everyone. The first moment it looks like relief, not too serious, then more information arrived and it became more serious. I had contact with a few people but I didn’t want to bother them with my silly questions so I was waiting like all the rest of the world for more information. “The last thing I thought about was the game. I watched it and I can 100% see both sides. It’s really difficult to find a date in this tight schedule because when would you want to play the game? But I think everyone would have understood if they said they did not want to play it, we find a solution next week or whatever we can do. I was really proud of Dortmund and how they handled it and created this atmosphere. The game was not too important but when they played they tried to be at their best. “But I saw the faces of my former players after the game and I saw the shock in their Jae Crowder Authentic Jersey eyes and that was really hard. It is a very serious thing. It will obviously take time to deal with it in a proper way
