Batshuayi: “I don’t know if Conte was watching my game, I was lacking confidence at Chelsea”

Michy Batshuayi admits he was lacking confidence at Chelsea while now, at Borussia Dortmund, he plays full of it.

The Belgian striker arrived to Stamford Bridge in summer 2016 and despite playing an important role in last title campaign never had full trust by manager Antonio Conte, who rarely started him in the 18 months he coached him.

However, Batshuayi has been showing all his qualities since he moved on loan to Borussia Dortmund, where he has already scored 5 goals in only 3 games.

The 24-year-old forward took a swipe to his former boss, Conte, claiming he just needed more playing time:

“I don’t know if Conte was watching my game,” said Batshuayi.

“Sitting on the bench, score a goal and then back to the bench is quite difficult to deal with for an attacker.

“It wasn’t always easy at Chelsea. I’m now playing with a lot of confidence.

“They are focusing on the Premier League and have an important Champions League tie next week. I hope it turns out well for them.”
