UEFA REVIEWING SAFETY PROTOCOLS FOLLOWING DORTMUND INCIDENT

UEFA is reviewing security procedures for Wednesday’s Champions League fixtures after the attack that apparently targeted Borussia Dortmund’s team bus.

Defender Marc Bartra was injured in the incident and has since undergone surgery on his wrist.

“While there has been no specific intelligence regarding any threat to tonight’s matches, we would like to assure teams, officials and supporters that UEFA always insists upon the highest standards of safety and security arrangements for competition matches, and that the safety of everyone attending UEFA’s matches is our highest priority,” read a statement from European football’s governing body.

“Following last night’s incident in Dortmund, UEFA – in co-operation with the police, security services, stadium management and the clubs involved – is reviewing the security arrangements for tonight’s matches and security procedures will be enhanced accordingly wherever needed.”
