Michy Batshuayi Subjected To Racist Abuse, Responds Perfectly

Michy Batshuayi Subjected To Racist Abuse, Responds Perfectly

Michy Batshuayi responded perfectly to the vile racist abuse he was subjected last night.

The Belgium international played the full 90 minutes as Borussia Dortmund drew 1-1 with Atalanta and qualified for the Europa League round of 16 courtesy of a 4-3 aggregate win.

The on-loan Chelsea striker, who scored a brace in the 3-2 first leg victory, says he heard "monkey noises in the stands" from a section of the home supporters and expressed his disbelief as to how racism is still rife in the game in 2018.

In typical good form on Twitter, he trolled the racists by saying, "hope you have fun watching the rest of the Europa League on TV while we are through" and telling them to watch Black Panther.

As noted by the BBC, last month Atalanta were hit with a suspended one-game stand closure after Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly received racist chants in his side's 1-0 away win.

Here's hoping a stronger stance is taken by UEFA this time around...
