German Sergei Wenergold was found guilty of 28 counts of attempted murder for an April 2017 attack on Borussia Dortmund’s team bus before a UEFA Champions League fixture which injured defender Marc Bartra and a police officer. Wenergold, 29, was also found guilty by a Dortmund state court of inflicting grievous bodily harm and of causing an explosion. The attack occurred on April 11 last year when the Dortmund team were leaving their hotel for a Champions League clash with AS Monaco. Three explosions caused bus windows to smash, injuring Spanish defender Bartra, who then missed one month of the season as a result of a broken wrist damaged in the blast.
