Praised by Montella but whistled by his own public: the summer will be decisive for Batshuayi

Despite the 14 goals he scored, the Devil did not find a place in the hearts of Besiktas supporters. While Bas Dost is cited to replace him in Istanbul.

Matching a performance by the great Mario Gomez usually earns you praise. Except that, during the derby against Fenerbahce, the one matched by Michy Batshuayi is rather one to forget. He is the first Besiktas player to miss two penalties in a single season since 2015-2016. That year, the German had managed one out of three, while this season, the Devil scored four out of six.

The one that Batshuayi missed this Sunday during the match at the top only made his relationship with the Besiktas public even worse. While he had the opportunity to put his people in charge at the start of the game, he gave way to Georges-Kevin Nkoudou on the hour mark before going directly to the locker room instead of taking a seat on the bench. The local supporters did not fail to whistle him… again. One thing is certain: the striker on loan from Chelsea will not stay at the Istanbul club this summer.
