Bomb blast victim Marc Bartra returns to Borussia Dortmund training less than a month after breaking his arm

Spaniard has been sidelined after the horrific ordeal which included three explosions near the team bus

MARC BARTRA has returned to training less than a month after breaking his wrist during the bomb attacks near Borussia Dortmund’s team bus.

The Spanish defender had to have surgery on his hand and wrist after three terrifying explosions went off before Dortmund’s Champions League clash with Monaco in April.

The 26-year-old was the only player to sustain serious injuries but has moved a step closer in returning to action after being sidelined.

The ex-Barca man was expected to be out for the rest of the season but it appears he could make a return for their crucial run in.

Dortmund have three Bundesliga matches left of the campaign before they take on Frankfurt in the German Cup final on May 27.

It has been a rough ride for Bartra who also admitted he received death threats after showing his support for former team-mate Lionel Messi before the El Clasico.

Bartra tweeted “D10S” – nickname of Diego Maradona, with dios in Spanish meaning God and D10S a play on that word with the number 10 in place of letters “io”.

That nickname is now used to describe the godlike qualities of arguably the best player since Maradona, fellow Argentine Messi.
