Bartra shows off Dortmund-themed cast as he continues recovery after bus attack

Date Posted,April 27, 2017

Marc Bartra has shown off his new cast – which is coloured in Borussia Dortmund’s yellow and black.

The defender was injured when explosives went off near the Dortmund team bus ahead of the Champions League quarter-final first leg with Monaco earlier this month.

Bartra , 26, was the only player to receive serious injuries in the blast, which happened on April 11.

Monaco showed little room for sentiment as they beat Dortmund 3-2 after the match was rescheduled for the following day, before beating the Bundesliga side 3-1 in the return leg.

Bartra updated fans on his recovery on both his Twitter and Instagram pages, posting a picture of his arm in a black and yellow cast – the colours of Dortmund’s strip – while giving a thumbs up.

He said in a tweet: “Happy with the progress! Happy with the evolution and soon will start the hard work to be back as soon aspossible!”

The Spain international is expected to be out for at least a month due to the injury.
