Nathaniel Chalobah attempts to troll Michy Batshuayi during funny TV interview

Published 3 Comments

That Chelsea already had a fairly sizeable Belgian contingent must have played a role in Michy Batshuayi’s decision to join the Blues.

The 22-year-old, who arrived at Stamford Bridge in a £33 million move from Marseille over the summer, appears to be settling in well at his new club.

But his teammates - particularly Eden Hazard - clearly find it very amusing that Batshuayi is having a few minor problems getting to grips with the English language.

The Chelsea winger couldn’t help but laugh when his new teammate conducted an interview with the club’s TV channel following Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Watford.

And after that interview, Nathaniel Chalobah - not a Belgian, but an Englishman - then thought he’d have a go at asking his teammate a few questions while trying to make him say something funny.

“Michy, are you going to change your hair,” Chalobah asked the forward.

“Huh?” he replied, before realising what Chalobah meant and adding: “Ah, no, I like!”.

Chalobah and Batshuayi look a little similar because of their hairstyles and his second question was: “Who is better looking, me or you?”

Hazard then said something to his compatriot - probably an attempt to get him to say something silly on camera - but Batshuayi wasn’t falling for it.

“Me,” he responded, prompting laughter from his two teammates.

Courtois: Batshuayi can put pressure on Costa

Batshuayi will have a big role to play at Chelsea this season, with Antonio Conte unlikely to sign another striker before the transfer window closes.

Thibaut Courtois, another of Chelsea’s Belgian players, believes he can put pressure on Diego Costa for a starting place upfront.

“It’s very good for Michy, I’m happy for him,” the goalkeeper was quoted as saying by the Mirror following the 2-1 win at Vicarage Road.

"Obviously he has to have a bit of patience with a top striker like Diego in front of him. But, if he comes on and keeps making the difference like this, he makes it hard for the coach to leave him out.


“Each time he came on, he’s been sharp — he was there in the right place and was a real danger.

“He scored against Watford but hit the crossbar as well. It’s a sign that he’s ready and he wants to score, that he can be in the first XI as well.”

Will Michy Batshuayi turn out to be one of this summer’s best signings? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
