Borussia Dortmund pay tribute to their Batsman: Michy Batshuayi

Borussia Dortmund registered a narrow 1-0 win over Hannover on Sunday thanks to a single strike from Michy Batshuayi.

The Belgian striker, on loan from Chelsea, has already earned himself a cult reputation at Dortmund, largely thanks to his eight goals in 11 appearances since moving to the side in January.

As such, to mark the new week, Dortmund paid tribute to their "Batsman" by putting him on the front page of the newspaper.

Batshuayi is most definitely the hero the Westfalenstadion needs right now, even if he does have a Spongebob Squarepants lamp.

Dortmund are currently third in the Bundesliga table, one point behind rivals Schalke in second place.
