In what should be a good news for Borussia Dortmund after the disappointing 3-2 home defeat to Monaco on Wednesday, Marc Bartra who was injured in Tuesday's bomb explosion has spoken for the first time since his surgery for the injury sustained during the terrorist attack.

The former Barcelona man has confirmed he was feeling much better after a terrorist attack on the Borussia Dortmund team bus left him with wrist injuries requiring surgery.

Bartra who was pictured at the hospital where he was operated on with his thumb up took to his Instagram page, saying: "Hello everyone! As you see, I am already much better," Bartra said on his Instagram account.

"Thanks to everyone for the messages of support! All my strength to my teammates, fans and the whole of BVB for the game!"

Already having been operated on because of the rupture in the radius of his arm and the wounds in his right hand, Borussia Dortmund's Marc Bartra is now concerned about possible ligament damage.

The explosion occurred at the team hotel, just over 10 kilometres from the stadium in Hoechsten, located outside the city, according to police. Any sense of the attackers' identity has yet to emerge.
