Borussia Dortmund's Michy Batshuayi 'racially abused during Europa League match'

The Belgian striker has smashed in five goals in his opening four games in Germany

Borussia Dortmund striker Michy Batshuayi has claimed he was the subject of alleged racist chants from Atalanta fans during Thursday night's Europa League clash.

The Italians had been 2-1 up in Dortmund before capitulating 3-2 to two late goals, and were 1-0 up for most of this evening until a Marcel Schmelzer equaliser seven minutes from time sent them through 4-3 on aggregate. The Belgium International will make return to Chelsea at the end of the season, when his loan deal at BVB will expire. The Belgium global wrote that he heard "monkey noises" from the Atalanta fans during the game.

"2018 and still racists monkey noises in the stands. really?!️ Hope you have fun watching the rest of the Europa League on TV while we are through".

The 24-year-old joined Bundesliga side BVB on loan in the recent transfer merry-go-around that saw Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang join Arsenal and Olivier Giroud move from the Gunners to the Blues.

Dortmund's official Twitter account retweeted Batshuayi's original tweet in support of the striker. In January, the club was fined and saw their stands closed for a match due to the racist chants against Napoli's Senegalese defender, Kalidou Koulibaly.

"I'll be honest, I didn't hear them", Percassi told Sky Sport Italia. "If it did happen, then I am very sad and absolutely apologise to Batshuayi. This should never happen", said Antonio Percassi.
