Batshuayi 'in great pain' after suffering ankle injury, Stoger confirms

The Schalke players huddled together in front of a sea of blue and white fans at Veltins Arena

Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that an untimely injury has ended Michy Batshuayi's season, but he remains in contention for World Cup duty.

The 24-year-old appeared in half of Belgium's World Cup qualifiers, scoring once in two starts and three substitute appearances. Borussia Dortmund loanee Michy Batshuayi will miss the rest of the club season and is a doubt to represent Belgium at the World Cup after injuring ankle ligaments during Sunday's derby against Schalke.

Dortmund, who have four league games left, put out a statement on Monday saying Batshuayi is "probably" out for the rest of the season.

He was forced from the field on a stretcher during that contest, with fears immediately raised as to his possible participation at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation. "Get well soon, Michy!"

"I won't be able to pay BVB back for their confidence - thank you all the awesome amount of love I received since yesterday".

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. Wishing my teammates the best for the final days.

Dortmund boss Peter Stoger had told Dortmund's official website in the wake of a 2-0 defeat to Schalke that he feared the worst when it came to Batshuayi's fitness.
