Chelsea loanee Michy Batshuayi is a major doubt for this summer’s World Cup after confirming he is out for the remainder of the season through injury.
The 24-year-old striker was taken off on a stretcher late on in Dortmund’s 2-0 defeat to Schalke.
Batshuayi posted on Twitter: “Well its not good news for now, my season is probably over, and i wont be able to pay @BVB back for their confidence … 😔 Thank you all the amazing amount of love I received since yesterday. Wishing my teammates the best for the final days. See you soon”
Borussia Dortmund also confirmed the news and tweeted: “@mbatshuayi has suffered an ankle injury in the derby at @s04 and is likely to be out for the rest of the season. Playing for the Belgian national team at the World Cup in Russia is possible. Get well soon, Michy!”
Batshuayi has scored 9 times in 14 appearances since joining Dortmund on loan in January.
