After starring for Borussia Dortmund against FC Augsburg on Saturday, Marco Reus is eyeing the Champions League final at the Wembley stadium as the scene for his farewell.

It was announced on Friday that Marco Reus would be leaving Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season after 12 years at the club. The 34 year old returned to the BVB starting XI on Saturday, and played a crucial role in their 5-1 win over FC Augsburg.

Reus scored one goal and assisted a further two in the big win, and also received a special round of applause from the supporters after the game. The former BVB captain said that it was an indescribable feeling, and added that he is incredibly grateful for all the support from the fans.
"It was an indescribable feeling. There's no substitute for the boys calling you forward. I'm incredibly grateful. I have no words."

While Reus will be looking for a new challenge after the end of the season, his main aim at the moment is to help Borussia Dortmund reach the final of the UEFA Champions League. "I hope that we'll see each other at Wembley on June 1 and have even more reasons to celebrate. Until then, it's going to be hard work. But we'll give it our all. We have a huge opportunity on Tuesday to pull off something great. We all have to be committed to this goal."

Borussia Dortmund hold a 1-0 lead over Paris Saint-Germain ahead of Tuesday's second leg of their Champions League semifinal. Reaching the CL final for the first time since 2013 will be the goal for the Black and Yellows, as they look to give Reus the perfect send-off.
