Hannover CEO Martin Kind was shocked to hear of the incarceration of a man who had planned a terrorist attack in Dortmund ahead of die Roten's visit to the Signal-Iduna-Park this weekend.
Earlier today it was revealed that a 25-year-old German citizen had been apprehended by the BKA (German federal police) for planning to attack fans as they entered Dortmund's Signal-Iduna-Park on Saturday.
"I am appalled," he told Kicker after learning of the arrest. "I cannot imagine that football fans are capable of such thoughts."
However, Kind insists that his club will not seek to cancel the game, but instead will travel to Dortmund without worries, adding: "We can look forward to a safe and attractive football match. I will walk into the stadium without a sense of fear."
The arena, which has been packed to capacity in nine matches this year, is expected to have more than 80,000 in attendance for the Bundesliga clash.
