Kagawa: I am still frightened

Shinji Kagawa has revealed the bomb blasts that shook the Borussia Dortmund team bus en route to a Champions League game still haunts him.

His comments follow in the wake of the devastating terror attack in Manchester at an Ariana Grande concert.

The 28-year-old former Manchester United midfielder said he was "still frightened" following the attack in April that saw Marc Bartra suffer an injury to his wrist.

The match against Monaco at Signal-Iduna-Park was postponed until the following day, but with the players still dealing with their ordeal, they lost the tie, before being eliminated from the competition over two legs.

Kagawa explained: "I'm afraid to get on the bus, I am afraid to drive to games.

"I was frightened – and I am still frightened, to be honest.

The Japanese international added on his blog: "I was petrified. I looked back and saw the shattered window panes.

"I saw Marc Bartra curled up. Like everybody else, I was completely shaken."
