Twitter Reacts to Batshuayi's Funny Message to Kurt Zouma After He Completes Stoke Move

Monday July 24th, 2017

Michy Batshuayi is never one to stay quiet on social media. The 23-year-old Belgian has built a reputation for his antics online, with his latest being directed towards Chelsea teammate Kurt Zouma, who has subsequently moved on loan to Stoke.

The French defender started just three Premier League games last season after returning from a cruciate ligament rupture in December. The 22-year-old defender completed a loan move to Stoke City earlier this week and Batsuayi was quick to send Zouma a heartfelt message.

As is the case with most of Batshuayi's social media antics, fans were quick to get involved with their thoughts, although some weren't quite as amused as others.

​​

Although the comical value may have been lost on some fans, Batshuayi made one Chelsea fans day by giving a seal of approval to what they replied with.

Batshuayi's involvement on social media is a fantastic example of where modern day football is going. Most professionals use the platform to promote brand deals, however, the Belgium international has become a favourite of Chelsea fans and indeed neutrals just with his funny interactions online.
