Norwich City Confirm ‘Unharmed’ Dieumerci Mbokani Was at Zaventem Airport During Terror Attacks

Norwich City have confirmed that their striker Dieumerci Mbokani was at Zaventem Airport airport in Brussels during this morning’s suspected terrorist attacks.

According to reports, at least 30 people are feared dead in the Belgian capital after two explosions at the airport, and another at a nearby subway station.

And Mbokani was at the airport as the blasts took place, but wasn’t injured or hurt, and Norwich say the DR Congo striker is now back home.

The Premier League club released a statement this afternoon to confirm that the on-loan Dynamo Kiev striker was there and unharmed, but “shaken” by the shocking events.

They said via their official website: “The club is in constant dialogue with Dieumerci, who has now returned home to be with his family.

“The thoughts of everyone at Norwich City are with the victims of the atrocities in Belgium today and their relatives.”

As we told you earlier today, the Belgian national side, which is made up of several high-profile Premier League players, cancelled their planned training session as news of the attacks broke.

It remains unclear whether their planned friendly with Portugal on Tuesday will go ahead.
