The quarter-final first leg at home to AS Monaco was postponed on Tuesday after three explosions went off near the Dortmund bus as it made its way to the stadium, injuring Spanish defender Marc Bartra.
The match was immediately rescheduled for Wednesday and Monaco ran out 3-2 winners in what turned out to be a pulsating encounter.
UEFA said it made the decision after consulting both teams, however Tuchel said he and his players were not asked.
"We were informed by text message that UEFA was making this decision," he said.
"A decision made in Switzerland that concerns us directly. We will not forget it, it is a very bad feeling.
A few minutes after this attack, the only question that was asked was, 'Are you ready to play?'. As if we had thrown a beer on our coach.
"At that time, we did not know the reasons for this attack. There is a feeling of helplessness. The date was imposed on us. What we think has not interested anyone. We weren't asked about playing the game.
"I just wanted more time, a few more days. In a few days, we will not have digested completely but time helps us to find a solution.
"It is important to have a chance to realise this dream and our team was not at the top in concentration to make a difference at this level.
"UEFA is eager to continue playing. Of course we have to keep it going, but we still want to be competitive. We do not want to use the situation as an excuse.
