Last quote by Thomas Tuchel

It turns out that the players are very open, they also dare to show their feelings and talk about [the incident]. This is not usual, not normally. But this is a glue for us that we would not have otherwise. I am very satisfied that we are now in third place. And I am very satisfied with how we did it. We have earned the win, played a great away game. Through the course of the game, we have completely put ourselves in trouble. Afterwards, however, to show such a reaction and to dominate so much is great. The team deserves a compliment.feedback

Thomas Tuchel quotes

We were informed by text message. To decide things in Switzerland when we are affected did not feel good. At the very least, it makes you feel powerless.feedback

It was surreal, you try to help, hope to get to safety and try to calm down.feedback

We have to find a way to deal with it, but I am not sure how. We all have to deal with it in our own way. We all experienced the attack in a different way. A lot of players did not sleep. Some of them only really realised what had happened when they returned to their families.feedback

But you are the best sportsman if you have no worries. Football is not as important as our families, living in peace, feeling safe and being healthy.feedback

Bartra will be out of action for about four weeks. But he would have liked to play on Saturday if he could. You call your family to say you are alright. You just want to get as far away as possible. This is the first day to really process it. Wednesday was like walking through a cloud. Dealing with this is a process that will go on for days and weeks. It comes and goes in waves. Today [Thursday] has been a bad day for me.feedback

I am sure the whole situation will have an impact on the upcoming games, but we are not concerned. We have to accept it and deal with it. Time will help. We do not want to bring every match from here on into the context of what happened on Tuesday. That would get us nowhere.feedback

We basically had the feeling that we were being treated as if a beer can had hit our bus, and half an hour later the decision was made that (it would be held) tomorrow at 6.45 p.m. And that was the point of time when we were informed. Then it was very unclear how serious the injury of Marc Bartra was and what was behind this incident, that gives you a feeling of powerlessness.feedback

We were informed by text message that Uefa was making this decision. We would have liked more time to take stock. This gives you the feeling of impotence, that we have to keep functioning and nothing else matters.feedback

The situation is absurd. We only had 15 players available in the squad. We would have wanted to have more time to digest all of this. We did not get this time. We have to live with the fact that the match was scheduled. It's about our dream, our big dream, and the squad did not have the feeling they could make the difference in the small situations.feedback

It was very difficult for the team to focus on the game. We let the players decide if they wanted to play today. But we noticed that training did us good.feedback

There are players who can easily deal with what's happened and others who worry more – very mixed feelings. We wished we would have wished for more time to deal with what happened but someone in Switzerland decided we have to play. It's not very fair. What happened yesterday happened to us as people. Every player has the right to start with a strange feeling. We've been left feeling a bit helpless by the decision. But professionals find solutions to problems. We are strong enough.feedback

I have a bit more experience than my players and I told them not to worry so much about it, try not to think so much about it, it does not get better. Everybody has the right to deal with it the way he wants to. If you want to talk about it, talk. If you want to be silent, be silent. If you need a hug, I hug you, or find someone who hugs you at home.feedback

It's all different characters and it was very inspiring to see how we dealt with it in the second half. We made a good second half. The game is over now and it feels a bit weird.feedback

We were not attacked on the field by an opponent; we were attacked from inside the bus as men. Of course this has an effect and it was a terrible experience for all of us. We wanted to have a bit more time to deal with it. We didn't get the time.feedback

We would have wished for more time to process this. But we try to divert ourselves as best we can.feedback

We have shown what we are capable of in the Champions League. We are ready to show it again Tuesday. We need four good halves in the quarter-final. Good periods alone will not be enough.feedback

There is no need to show 20 replays of the game. As we play on Saturday-Tuesday, there is no time to analyse the last match. Players need to recuperate mentally, too.feedback

We need Aubameyang in absolute top form to reach the semi-finals. That is what the Champions League demands. We need Aubameyang's finishing, his defensive contribution but also his music and vibe before the game. It calms everyone down. He speaks Spanish, French, Italian, English and even German - when he wants. He can understand German - when he wants. Sometimes it is best to wake up on Sunday morning and just forget the last game. We are not in a bad situation, we just had one bad result. We deservedly lost against a strong opponent.feedback

It was already a difficult game to begin with and the way things panned out only further complicated matters. We deservedly lost by this margin. We needed to be on top of our game in order to stand a chance.feedback

Overall, we did not have a chance of causing Bayern any problems at this level, . We started well, but were nonetheless trailing by two goals after 10 minutes. That made things very hard for us. It was nearly impossible to turn things around. We kept on playing well and pulled one back, but the third goal effectively decided the game. It is a very bitter defeat.feedback

Ancelotti is an extraordinary coach and extraordinary personality with an extraordinary career.feedback

Bayern are no longer as dogmatic as they were under Guardiola. They play with more freedom and enjoy a lot of trust.feedback

Hoffenheim hardly have any injuries. They are riding a wave of success. There have been hardly any negative moments in their season.feedback

I'm not surprised about Hoffenheim. They play at their full potential and have two players [Niklas Sule and Sebastian Rudy] that will join Bayern.feedback

The personnel situation makes it very tough but when you're wearing the Dortmund jersey at the Allianz Arena you're ready. Playing Bayern at this time of the season means you usually play the best Bayern you can play. That's good, the biggest measuring stick. It's important that we have beaten Bayern to have the belief that it is possible. If you give me four weeks without any injuries, I'd say yes, we're on the same level as Bayern. We travel to Munich in a confident mood. We expect the best possible Bayern side and believe we can match them for 90 minutes.feedback

Reus has returned to the training pitch and is feeling well. He is training with the ball again, but has not resumed squad training yet.feedback

But we have to be careful, especially if we bear in mind what's happened before.feedback

He would not be the first player who got influenced from the outside. But we cannot doubt his character. You can have a critical chat with him and he understands the club's view. He is so important for us with his confidence, we have a different attitude with him on the pitch. We fully believe in him, also because of how he returned before.feedback

We see the situation slightly different now than immediately after the game, because we have some more information now. We were informed the day before that he had planned something in case he scored, but we did not know any details. The people in charge have already had their say on the matter. There will be further discussions, but I can afford to solely focus on the football side of things. Of course, this makes things slightly more complicated. There is a conflict of interests between what's best for the players and for the club.feedback

Erik Durm, as well as Andre Schurrle, is out. Schurrle came back from international duty with an injury while Durm sustained a muscle injury in training and is not ready. It's annoying when players return injured, especially with Marco Reus and Mario Gotze already out. Schurrle suffered a knock to his foot.feedback

We're going to Gelsenkirchen to win. It'll be tough but we're confident that we can pull it off.feedback

We will have to wait and see on Christian but he's definitely in the squad. It is complicated. The justified hype and the way opponents play takes its toll.feedback

Schalke are a physical side, who play with a lot of heart. We have to emulate those virtues and play with at least the same verve.feedback

I can't give you any information about the topic because it doesn't involve me. I'm happy with my job in Dortmund and have a contract, so it is of no interest to me.feedback

The result feels good. We obviously didn't make our best game. Nevertheless, it is great that we have won.feedback

Weigl might try things later today, he was in rehab basically 24 hours after Hertha. Kagawa picked up a knock to his knee against Lotte. It would be a shame for Shinji if he had to miss tomorrow's match, as he is in blinding form. I'd advise Pulisic not to read too much, especially if things aren't going so well. Maybe turn off that Google alert for his own name on his phone. It's incredibly hard to play us at our home, nobody really likes it. I didn't fancy it much for five years [coaching Mainz] myself.feedback

It'll be a tough game. Ingolstadt haven't had a lot of good results, but they have played well. They defend very resolutely. It was very aggravating for us to not win the reverse fixture in Ingolstadt, as they were going through tough times. Ingolstadt will be very courageous with our personnel problems in mind, so we'll have to develop a special focus.feedback

We're happy about Pulisic's development, but we have to keep in mind that he could play at youth level. He was an important factor as a substitute and now with more injuries he is an integral part of the team.feedback

This young lad is an academy player, he still could play at youth level. So I would tell Mehmet to slow down a bit.feedback

Auba had to do the job and he did it. It was extremely important that he scored twice in the last two league matches.feedback

After our early goal we sort of eased off a bit. Like we lost the plot a bit, too static.feedback

It remained a close game because Leverkusen never gave up. We had to defend diligently in order to avoid the possibility of conceding early chances.feedback

It's impossible that Reus will play on Wednesday.feedback

This is sad news, he's been playing at a high level for weeks. That is a huge loss for us that definitely blurs this victory.feedback

They ensure a high level and we feel very fit for the tasks that are on the agenda.feedback

We need peace, calm and tranquillity for Mario. He needs rest, understanding and support - all of which he will get here. It takes time for the best treatment. Then he will be an important part of the team again. We had more training time and more time to regenerate. My team is doing excellently well at the moment, their energy and quality is outstanding, their desire for training as well.feedback

There is nothing arrogant about Aubameyang's masked goal celebration. It's a derby and I'm sure you'll be talking about it in years to come. We controlled large parts of the game but needed a lot of time to find solutions up front. Missing by centimetres when Dembele hit the post - sometimes we lack the urge to score a messy goal. We needed a bit of luck for the referee not to give the handball. The referee doesn't have to give it - but he certainly could.feedback
