Michy Batshuayi may not be playing regularly for either Chelsea or Belgium — there’s good reason for the former, certainly, given Diego Costa’s scintillating form — but he’s endeared himself to fans just the same already in his brief time at Stamford Bridge with his hilarious social media accounts and online engagement.
Of course, when you’re all of 23 years old and your concerns involve waking up on time, eating well, training hard, concentrating for 90 minutes once a week, playing some video games (PES > FIFA, right?), and deciding which SpongeBob pyjamas to wear tonight, it’s probably pretty easy to be carefree.
But he could just as well be jaded with the online experience; there are far too many haters and trolls, to put it kindly, out there. But so far, Michy’s taken them all in stride, including the latest after Belgium’s win yesterday.
The low-hanging fruit can be pretty tasty.
It’s all fun and games until Michy quits Twitter of course. Can’t we all just be nice?
