Oltermann noted German media reports say the 28-year-old bought 15,000 shares in the team for €78,000 with a put option, which means he had the right to sell the shares back at a predetermined price before a set time in the future.

"If the shares of Borussia Dortmund had fallen massively, the profit would have been several times the initial investment", a statement said, before adding that such a slump would have occurred if players had been seriously injured or even killed.

"The man appears to have wanted to commit murder out of greed", Ralf Jager, the North Rhine-Westphalia state's minister of the interior, said, according to ESPN FC.

Borussia Dortmund thanked police, who had reportedly had had the suspect under surveillance for days, after leads, including a tipoff from a financial sector source. The 28-year-old man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder, among other things.

Speaking at a news conference later on Friday, GBA spokesperson Frauke Koehler said that searches had taken place in four different cities, though investigators had found no evidence that the suspect had an accomplice.

"We hope that by arresting the suspect, the person responsible for the villainous attack on our players and staff members has been caught", the pair said in a joint statement on the club's official website.

The fact that, aside from Bartra, "no others were wounded or even killed, was - as we know today - exclusively due to huge luck", said the statement from the club, which plans to step up security by employing GSG 9 and other elite police veterans.
