Bartra reduced to tears as Dortmund celebrate German Cup triumph with parade

Date Posted,May 30, 2017

Marc Bartra was reduced to tears as fans cheered his name during Borussia Dortmund’s victory parade for their German Cup triumph.

Bartra required surgery on his wrist when Dortmund’s team bus was targeted by a bomb prior to their Champions League clash against Monaco.

He received huge support from Dortmund fans and the wider football community and has since returned to action, featuring in his side’s victory over Eintracht Frankurt to win the DFB-Pokal.

And he was visibly moved as he celebrated the trophy with his teammates and Dortmund fans.

After the game, Bartra admitted he thought his career was over following the blast.

“When the attack happened, I thought I would never be able to play again. I could not move in the first five or 10 minutes and I could not hear anything,” he told Kicker.

“When the doctor told me after the surgery that everything was going well and I was going to be able to play again in a month, that was indescribable and the most beautiful news.

“I feel stronger today than ever before. I was very sad that such a thing could happen – it was a few damn difficult weeks – but now we can all enjoy this victory.”
