"I would have been dead!": Michy Batshuayi reveals his frustration at Chelsea caused him to break club rule
Chelsea untouchable Michy Batshuayi says he was so baffled at his bit part at Stamford Bridge that he was headed to break a club rule.

The Belgian forward was solidified out at the Blues under Antonio Conte, and infrequently highlighted in the Premier League before influencing a loan move to Borussia Dortmund in January.

He's been in fine form since moving to Germany, scoring eight goals in 12 games as Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata - the forwards Conte has turned to instead of the £33.2million man - have both struggled in front of goal, scoring just once between them since Batshuayi's departure.

And the 24-year-old told Onze magazine that he was so fed up at his lack of action with the Blues that he turned to playing futsal to try and maintain a competitive edge.

“At the club you’re not allowed to do it, but I played futsal," he said, when explaining how he kept busy when he wasn't in the team.

"If I didn’t play futsal, I would have been dead.

"I did not tell my teammates, I never told anyone [at Chelsea].

"I kill myself at futsal for 1 hour or 2 hours. It's mandatory for me.

"It allows me to feel better, to free myself, to feel the sensation of the ball, the feeling of finding the path of the nets and especially the notion of pleasure with my friends."

Dortmund are believed to want to make Batshuayi's loan move permanent, but the forward is set to return to Stamford Bridge in the summer, with Antonio Conte's expected departure likely to give him another chance.
