Batshuayi probably out for remainder of season, World Cup status unknown

Belgium global Batshuayi was taken off on a stretcher late on in the 2-0 defeat by Schalke on Sunday, having appeared to roll his ankle.

The worst thing about such a serious injury at this stage of the campaign is that it makes the 24-year-old a huge doubt ahead of the World Cup, which is less than two months away.

"Batshuayi sustained an ankle injury in the derby at Schalke and will probably be out of action for the remainder of the season", the tweet read.

For now, Batshuayi will likely be heading back to Chelsea's training facility in Cobham starting the rehabilitation process.

"Participation with the Belgian national team at the World Cup in Russian Federation remains in the realms of possibility. I hope, of course, that I'm mistaken", Dortmund boss Peter Stoger said after the defeat in Gelsenkirchen.

"Thank you all the fantastic amount of love I received since yesterday".

Batshuayi has scored nine times in 14 games since joining Dortmund from Chelsea on loan in the winter transfer window in a deal that runs out at the end of this campaign. Wishing my teammates the best for the final days.

But Belgium global Batshuayi faces a battle to recover from injury in time for the World Cup after suffering the injury in a heavy challenge from Benjamin Stambouli.

Batshuayi is playing on loan at Borussia Dortmund where he has lit up the Signal Iduna Park, netting seven times in 9 appearances.
