Bartra on Borussia Dortmund bus explosion
Borussia Dortmund defender Marc Bartra shared his experience and emotions about the explosion on the team bus, as a result of which he got injured. "The pain, the panic and the uncertainty of not knowing what was going on, or how long it would last ... were the longest and hardest 15 minutes of my life," the defender wrote in his Instagram post caption. "I think that the shock is decreasing more and more and, at the same time, it adds to the desire to live, to fight, to work, to laugh, to cry, to feel, to love, to believe, to play, to train, to continue to enjoy my people, loved ones, companions, my passion, to defend, to smell the grass as I do before the game starts and motivate me. "The only thing I ask is for everyone to live in peace and to leave behind the wars," the player continued. Hoy he vuelto a recibir en el hospital la visita que más feliz me hace. Ellas son mi todo, la razón por la que lucho para superar siempre los obstáculos y este ha sido el peor de mi vida, una experiencia que no desearía a nadie en este mundo. El dolor, el pánico y la incerteza de no saber lo que estaba pasando, ni cuánto tiempo duraría... fueron los 15 minutos más largos y duros de mi vida. A todo esto os quiero decir, que creo que el shock de estos días va disminuyendo cada vez más y a la vez se suman las ganas de vivir, de luchar, de trabajar, de reír, de llorar, de sentir, de querer, de creer, de jugar, de entrenar, de seguir disfrutando de mi gente, seres queridos, compañeros, de mi pasión, de defender, de oler el césped como hago antes de que empiece el partido y motivarme. De ver las gradas llenas de personas que aman nuestra profesión, gente buena que sólo quiere que le hagamos sentir emociones para olvidarse del mundo y sobre todo de este mundo en el que vivimos, cada vez más loco. Lo único que pido, LO ÚNICO, es que vivamos TODOS en paz y dejemos atrás las guerras. Estos días cuando me miro la muñeca, hinchada y malherida, sabéis qué siento? Orgullo. La miro orgulloso pensando en que todo el daño que querían hacernos el martes, se quedó en esto. Gracias a los doctores, enfermeras, fisioterapeutas y personas que me ayudan a recuperar y que la muñeca quede perfecta. A las miles y miles de personas, medios, organizaciones de todo tipo, el BVB y compañeros, que me habéis hecho llegar vuestro apoyo y cariño. Por pequeño que sea, me ha llenado increíblemente de fuerzas para seguir SIEMPRE adelante. Necesitaba escribir y desahogarme y así zanjar todo para ya solo pensar en ponerme al 100% lo más pronto posible! Un saludo muy grande! Marc 💛 A post shared by Marc Bartra (@marcbartra) on Apr 14, 2017 at 3:38am PDT "Thanks to the doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and people who helped me recover. "To the thousands and thousands of people, media, organisations of all kinds, the club and colleagues, who have given me your support and affection - as small as it may be - has filled me with incredible strength to continue on and on. "I needed to write and unburden myself and to settle everything so I can just think about getting 100 per cent as soon as possible," the player finalized.
Guardiola appeals to Trump and Putin
Manchester City manager Josep Guardiola made a public request to USA and Russian Federation presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. The Spanish specialist is worried about the violent war actions in Syria and hopes two country heads alongside with the Chinese president will be able to solve the issue. While asked to comment the violent terrorism act on Borussia Dortmund team bus, Guardiola noted: "It's a little scary how the world now is." "And it's getting crazier ... what happened in Syria ... I hope the President of the United States, the President of Russia and the President of China can intervene and solve it because if not, we don't know where we'll end up. "We must continue to live without fear and I wish Marc Bartra a huge recovery for what has been frightening and serious,"Pep concluded.
Real Madrid are favorites to win Champions League
The first leg matches of Champions League quarter-finals are held and the arrangement of things has changed drastically. Bookmakers, also, changed their opinion regarding the possible winner of the tournament. If Barcelona and Bayern Munich were the firmest favourites to win the title this year, now they are not even in the top 3. Holding champions Real Madrid, on the other hand, climbed to the first position of the possible winners' ranking. Betting company Vbet will pay you back 3 euros for every placed euro if you bet on Zinedine Zidane's team. The Whites showed a great football against Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena, which serves as a big argument to believe that Real Madrid will manage to become the first club to win two consecutive Champions League titles. Juventus also have good chances of winning the title, with the odds 4.00. Max Allegri's men defeated Barcelona 3 goals to 0 at home and now have one foot in the semifinals of the tournament. The quarter-finals return leg matches will take place on 18/19 April 2017.
