Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi slammed the interview claimed by Het Niuwsblad.
The article quoted Batshuayi as saying: “Honestly, I’m not trying to think too much [about my future]. It will be up to the board and the coach to decide. I’m the player, I go where Chelsea send me.”
In response to the article, Batshuayi wrote on Twitter: “Sorry but I never had this interview lol I’ve been chillin on a jet ski for 3 days”.
However, Het Niuwsblad journalist Bart Lagae has fired back and claims he spoke with Michy Batshuayi before the FA Cup-final. He says audio tapes exist of this and has asked why has Michy Batshuayi claimed he didn’t speak to Het Niuwsblad?
Batshuayi followed up by adding “Lol they are already had a dispute with them couple months ago.. sorry fam but can’t be trusted!”
Batshuayi is obviously keen to stay at Chelsea and would like to decide his own future.
Can’t blame him, these days players are forced to sit on the bench so they can play a few CL games and keep their international hopes alive, where if they came to a club like our with no European football they will be ignored by International managers, more an enditement on the way International bodies work than any club or player, it is one of the reasons why I like what Romelu Lukaku did when managed by Mourinho who wanted to use him as a bit player, he said guarantee me playing time or I will go to a club where I can play and he did, just a shame we couldn’t have afforded him at the time.
“chillin on a jet ski for 3 days”…. that’s a long time to be on a jet ski. Must have had a big tank of fuel.
I’m thinking Del Boy in Miami Twice with his stuck accelerator E20? Do we want a player like this at West Ham? He will end up at the end of the District Line every day 😂😂😂
