Marius Wolf spoke about his emotional farewell after playing at the Westfalenstadion for the final time as a Borussia Dortmund player.

The spotlight was on Marco Reus on Saturday afternoon as the Borussia Dortmund legend celebrated his Bundesliga farewell after 12 incredible years at the club. But two other players are also set to leave BVB at the end of the season, and had their Westfalenstadion farewells on Saturday.

Mateu Morey and Marius Wolf were both given a send-off by the club and were applauded by supporters. While the Spaniard missed the Bundesliga finale against Darmstadt due to illness, Wolf came on as a second-half substitute in his final game at the Westfalenstadion.

After the game, the duo joined Reus in the stands and led the fans in chants. For Wolf, the farewell was especially emotional as he was a Borussia Dortmund fan growing up and managed to overcome a number of hurdles to become a vital squad player and make 121 appearances for the club.

"It was very emotional - with Marco in the spotlight," Wolf told BVB-TV after the game. It was nice to say goodbye together with him. It was a great day. People often talk about what it's like up there in the Yellow Wall. To be able to experience that is amazing. It certainly won't be the last time for me."

"When I was a little boy, I used to wear the Dortmund jersey on the football pitch. I still have two weeks to achieve something even bigger with the club."

It remains to be seen what the future holds for Marius Wolf, who also fought his way into the Germany squad last year. First, the 28 year old will hope to end his BVB career by lifting the Champions League title on June 1.
