Crystal Palace boss discusses security issues after attack on Dortmund’s team bus
Sam Allardyce admits that Crystal Palace 2and other clubs may need to be more aware of issues around security after the attack on Borussia Dortmund’s team bus this week. Three explosions damaged the German club’s bus on Tuesday, just hours ahead of their Champions League quarter-final tie with Monaco, which was postponed as a result and played on Wednesday instead. Dortmund defender Marc Bartra was injured in the incident, and required an operation after fracturing his wrist.
Since the attack, Premier League clubs have been reminded that the security threat level in the UK remains ‘severe’ and Allardyce was asked about security in football in his pre-match press conference ahead of Palace’s game with Leicester City tomorrow (Saturday).
