"I can't sleep anymore"- Dortmund's Roman Burki opens up about his struggles after terror incident on team bus

Dortmund goalkeeper, Roman Burki has opened up about his struggles after last week’s terror incident on his team bus saying he finds it difficult to sleep.  Recall that 3 devices exploded near the team bus as they travelled to Signal Iduna Park for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final with Monaco. Burki found it appalling that his side  were forced to play their Champions League quarter-final first leg against Monaco just 24 hours after the ugly incident
“I’m not able to sleep anymore.I’m afraid of every little noise. At the end of Monaco game all team was in tears. I’m very glad my parents are with me. I can talk about everything with them. I could not concentrate. After the game the emotions came right out. There were tears in every player. It’s good that we have such a tight schedule and I don’t just have to sit on the couch and always have to remember what happened. I haven’t been following the news of the incident, so as not to burden me even more.”
He however slammed the governing body for their insensitivity, UEFA said it was only about money and not about humanity, and the next day, when I heard from any UEFA or FIFA spokesman that the game would have been canceled if someone had died.”
