Michy Batshuayi says Atalanta fans made monkey chants

Borussia Dortmund striker Michy Batshuayi has claimed he was the subject of alleged racist chants from Atalanta fans during Thursday night's Europa League clash.

The Belgium international, on loan from Chelsea, played the entire 90 minutes as substitute Marcel Schmelzer's 82nd-minute equaliser salvaged a 1-1 draw on the night which sent Dortmund into the last 16 with a 4-3 aggregate victory.

Batshuayi has taken to Twitter to condemn the Italian fans' actions at Reggio Emilia's Mapei Stadium.

He tweeted:

Last month the Italian club received a one-game stand closure, which was suspended for one year, after Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly was subjected to racist chants during a Serie A clash.

Told about the tweet after the game, Atalanta president Antonio Percassi told Sky Sports: "I'll be honest, I didn't hear them.

"If they did happen, then I am very sad and absolutely apologise to Batshuayi. This should never happen."
