A guy who bombed the Borussia Dortmund football team bus 2017 has been given 14 years for attempted murder.

Sergei Wenergold, a German of Russian origin, had hidden bombs packed with metal hooks that went off as a hedge was passed by the bus to some Champions League quarter-final match on its way.

The explosion, which injured two individuals, was treated as a suspected jihadist attack.

However, Wenergold confessed the plot.

In a bizarre twist, it appeared that by betting on a drop in the stock exchange cost of Borussia Dortmund the 29 year old had planned to earn money out of the bombing.

A police officer and dortmund’s Spanish defender Marc Bartra were injured in the attack.

Wenergold was convicted of 28 counts of murder.
