'Yellow Wall' Pays Incredible Respect For Former Borussia Dortmund Player Neven Subotic
Borussia Dortmund's famous Yellow Wall cheered and sang Neven Subotic's name on Saturday following the team's win over his new side Union Berlin.
Subotic was a Dortmund player for 10 years between 2008 and 2018, winning two Bundesliga titles and two German cups in that time and also helping them to reach a Champions League final.
Whilst many of his teammates from that success moved on much earlier the centre back stayed until his deal ran out at the end of the 2017/18 season, when he moved to St Etienne.
He's now back in Germany playing for Union and returned to Signal Iduna Park for the first time on Saturday and got a huge reception at the end of the match.
The 31-year-old was nearly in tears and was clearly very happy with the send off he got at the end of the game saying, "It was such a special moment, there is no script for it. Everything that happens is made very special because 25,000 crazy fans are here to support me and show their appreciation.
"And also from my end it is very much appreciated. A very very special moment in my career, and my life."
Subotic certainly didn't have his best day at the Westfalenstadion when it came to defending on the weekend with his new side conceding five times in a 5-0 loss.
New Dortmund signing Erling Haaland continued his incredible season and unreal start to life in Germany with his sixth and seventh goals in just his third appearance, and first start, in the Bundesliga.
Jadon Sancho started the scoring, before the Norwegian added a second before the 20 minute mark, the home team had to wait a while for their next goals though.
Marcos Reus scored from the spot after 68 minutes, Axel Witsel made it 4-0 on 70 minutes and six minutes later Haaland wrapped things up.
The win left Lucian Favre's side in third in the Bundesliga, just three points off table toppers Bayern Munich, ahead of a big week in title race with Bayern facing second place RB Leipzig next weekend.
Subotic and Union are still four places and six points clear of the relegation play-off and a further point clear of the automatic relegation places, in their first season in Germany's top tier.
