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.
Ibrahimovic will be out for months after he suffered knee ligament damage in United’s Europa League game against Anderlecht, report the Manchester Evening News.
Batshuayi wrote: “#nomatterthecolour wishing Ibrahimovic a speedy and perfect recovery. Knowing the guy, it should be child’s play.”
The striker has made 17 appearances for Chelsea this season and fans of the club were not happy with his tweet.
There were a number of calls from the fans for him to delete his tweet and some went a step further suggesting that he should leave the club as it was out of order.
Some fans, including Manchester United supporters, tweeted him to say it was a classy gesture.
There were lots of calls for him to leave.
A step too far.
It was the United shirt that tipped people.
It did not go down well with the Chelsea fan base.
The Chelsea forward was not the only one to show his support for the Swede.
United’s players wore training shirts with Ibrahimovic and Rojo’s names on the back to show their support for the injured pair.
