Off The Pitch: Dortmund Bus Bomber Charged With Attempted Murder

German prosecutors have charged the man suspected of targeting the Borussia Dortmund team bus in an April nail-bomb attack with 28 counts of attempted murder.

Dortmund were en route to their Signal Iduna Park home for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Monaco on April 11 when three explosions went off.

Defender Marc Bartra was wounded and suffered a broken wrist, while the game was delayed by 24 hours – the Bundesliga side suffering a 3-2 defeat before eventually bowing out 6-3 on aggregate.
