The departure of Jakub Blaszczykowski to Wolfsburg was one of the saddest transfers Borussia Dortmund made this summer. Kuba had become a BVB legend and fan-favorite since signing for the club in 2007 from Wisla Krakow.

After Dortmund beat Wolfsburg 5-1 on Tuesday, the fans got a chance to say their goodbyes to Kuba.

The most touching part of this video is that it’s the Dortmund players who go out of their way to invite Blaszczykowski over to stand with them in front of the away section. You can really tell how much it meant to Kuba. By the end of the clip he’s on the verge of tears!

I’m sure he’ll get a similar reception from the fans when Wolfsburg come to the Westfalenstadion in February.

He may have moved on to another club, but there’s significance in him standing with the Dortmund players after the game. No matter what color he wears, he’ll always be remembered for his time in the yellow and black.
