Having lost Mario Gotze to Bayern Munich last summer, Borussia Dortmund fans could be forgiven for being less than happy to see star striker Robert Lewandowski follow in the footsteps of his former teammate.

However, if there was any resentment the Dortmund fans kept it to themselves as they bid farewell to their Polish marksman.

Prior to kick off, Lewandowski was presented with a collage of pictures from his time at the Westfalenstadion and a bunch of flowers - yellow ones of course.

The 25-year-old has had another successful season for Jurgen Klopp's side, firing 24 goals in all competitions.

He couldn't mark his final home game for the club with a goal, but he'll be happy with his sides 3-2 victory over Hoffenheim, having recovered from being 1-0 down.

Lewandowski will play his final game for the club next weekend when they travel to Hertha Berlin and he'll be desperate to end his four-year spell at the Westfalenstadion with a goal.

The highlight of his time in Dortmund will surely be last season's Champions League semi-final when he blasted four goals past Real Madrid on the way to final defeat against league rivals Bayern Munich.

While working with Klopp, Lewandowski won a league and cup double in 2012 having ended the clubs nine-year wait for silverware by lifting the Bundesliga title in in 2011.

Next season the striker will be playing in the red of Bayern Munich but you can see footage of his goodbye to the yellow wall of Dortmund, courtesy of the Daily Mail, here.
