Batshuayi unable ‘to pay back’ Dortmund
Borussia Dortmund striker Michy Batshuayi is set to miss the rest of the season – and possibly the World Cup – after injuring his ankle during a defeat by Schalke at the weekend. “Well, it’s not good news for now, my season is probably over and I won’t be able to pay Dortmund back for their confidence,” Batshuayi, who joined the Bundesliga club on loan from Chelsea in January, wrote on Twitter. “Wishing my teammates the best for the final days.” Batshuayi injured his left ankle late in Dortmund’s 2-0 defeat at Schalke on Sunday and left the stadium on crutches. Dortmund, who have four league games left, put out a statement yesterday saying Batshuayi is “probably” out for the season.
