Michy Batshuayi Reveals The One Club Role He Broke At Chelsea
Michy Batshuayi has revealed that he broke a club role at Chelsea while enduring a frustrating time at the club.
The Belgian striker, a £33 million signing from Marseille, has struggled for game-time at Stamford Bridge and was sent out on loan to Borussia Dortmund following the arrival of Olivier Giroud from Arsenal.
Batshuayi managed to score 10 goals for the Blues but his lack of action on the pitch caused him to break a club rule - that being he wasn't allowed to partake in futsal.
The 24-year old did not tell anybody at Chelsea but said the activity helped him free himself and feel better.
"At the club you're not allowed to do it, but I played futsal," he told Onze magazine.
"If I didn't play futsal, I would have been dead.
"I kill myself at futsal for 1 hour or 2 hours. It's mandatory for me. It allows me to feel better, to free myself, to feel the sensation of the ball, the feeling of finding the path of the nets and especially the notion of pleasure with my friends."

With his Chelsea future up in the air- and seemingly depending on what decision Chelsea take in regards to Antonio Conte, sticking with Dortmund may be the best move for him.
Skipper Marco Reus, who penned a new deal until 2023 recently, wants Batshuayi to be at Signal Iduna Park beyond this season.
"I'd be very pleased if Michy were to stay," Reus told journalists after the 3-2 win over Frankfurt.
"He's shown how important he can be for us."
Do you think Batshuayi and Dortmund are a perfect fit?
