Not quite a one-club man but without a doubt a Borussia Dortmund legend, the German international has understandably endeared himself to fans of the team over the past decade. His dedication, loyalty and desire to take the side as far as he possibly could ensured he developed a fantastic relationship with the supporters.

In an era during which many of the club's best players, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Robert Lewandowski and more recently Jude Bellingham for example, have all eventually departed the club, there has been one ever-present constant – and his name is Marco Reus.

As a result, supporters were keen to give him a fantastic send-off at the Signal Iduna Park on Saturday, May 18. A tifo reading “Danke Marco!”, which translates to ‘thank you Marco!', was unveiled ahead of kick-off.

Marco Reus announces his departure

The forward announced his departure from the club on May 3, releasing an emotional statement via the club's official website. He said: “Dear BVB supporters. I was allowed to play in this wonderful stadium for 12 years. I’ve dedicated half of my life to this club with many highs and lows. It was mainly highs, I’d say.

“The club and I have come to the decision not to extend my contract. It made me incredibly proud and I’m incredibly grateful to have been able to play for this club for so many years.

“It’s quite hard for me right now to find the right words nevertheless, it’s important for me to tell you fans first. We also have a big goal in sight. We want to go to  Wembley.”
