Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi has certainly made an instant impression at Borussia Dortmund following his loan move to the German club.

Having sealed a move away from Stamford Bridge on January deadline day, the Belgian scored a brace on his debut and scored in his second game for Dortmund, making it three goals in two appearances.

The Chelsea striker was brought to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who moved to Arsenal, and Batshuayi’s teammate at Dortmund Sokratis Papastathopoulos, has hailed the 24-year-old.

When speaking to Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport about Batshuayi, he said: “With Pierre (Aubameyang), we had a good rapport.

“We’ll always be friends, but it was his destiny to leave.

“I must say that Michy has presented himself really well. And not only with his flips (when he scores): he knows how to score and his desire to make the World Cup with Belgium can give us a nice boost.”
