Michy Batshuayi can't stop joking about his FIFA 17 rating

There's a lot to enjoy about Michy Batshuayi.

The Chelsea and Belgium striker hasn't played much since his £33 million deal from Marseille, but has already made an impact with the Stamford Bridge faithful.


He scores goals when asked, he rocks his socks low, he loves Thierry Henry - he seems very much like any regular 22 year old bloke. Albeit one who gets paid a tidy sum to play football.

Michy Batshuayi is an easy going fella who is looking forward to playing FIFA 17 when it comes out later this month...

He just wants them to fix his stat rating before the game comes out.


For the past few days, Batshuayi has been cheekily trying to get the bods at EA Sports to up his FIFA rating.

It appears the 22 year old has been playing FIFA for a while and reckons his 59 passing on a FUT Gold Card just won't do.

And he would not stop telling people about this.


He wasn't best pleased when the official FIFA account responded either.



(This is the part we tell you the PES demo is rather good and worth your time too.)

The Belgian striker joked, but you could see, his FIFA rating bugged him, just a little bit.

And then came the inevitable fan of a rival side who wanted to make a 'joke'.... but Michy soon put paid to that.

In the end, it all got ironed out.

In fact, if you cast your minds all the way back to yesterday when we were waiting for the FIFA demo, Michy had a quick explanation for why it took so long to arrive.

He's a funny boy, that Michy Batshuayi....
