BVB striker fearing season and World Cup KO with ankle injury

Borussia Dortmund

Michy Batshuayi could be facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after picking up an ankle injury while playing for Borussia Dortmund.

The Belgium international has been a revelation since arriving at the club from Chelsea on loan, but it looks as though his season could be over after he was stretchered off against Schalke on Sunday.

Dortmund coach Peter Stoger fears the worst, and not only could the player’s season be over, his chances of making the World Cup in Russia could also be in jeopardy.

Dortmund are still waiting to discover the full extent of the damage, but it does not look good and Belgium in particular will be praying for good news.

‘He is in great pain,’ Stoger said. ‘It looked like he could be out for a long time. I hope it’s not that bad.’

The striker has hit seven league goals since joining on loan and BVB will be keen to pursue a permanent deal in the summer.
