Chelsea fans want Batshuayi sacked after touching message to Ibrahimovic

Date Posted,April 24, 2017

Furious Chelsea fans have told Michy Batshuayi to leave Stamford Bridge – after he tweeted his support to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Batshuayi, 23, took to social media to share an image of himself wearing a United shirt with Ibrahimovic’s name and number, wishing him a quick recovery.

Batshuayi wrote: “#nomatterthecolour wishing Ibrahimovic a speedy and perfect recovery. Knowing the guy, it should be child’s play.”
