Michy Batshuayi

Michy Batshuayi hit back at UEFA after the governing body on Thursday dropped the investigation into his complaints that he subject to racist chants at Atalanta in the Europa League.

UEFA opened the probe late last month after Batshuayi, on loan at Dortmund from Chelsea, claimed monkey chants had been directed towards him from home fans during the second leg of the last-32 tie in Italy.

Atalanta faced charges of racist behaviour, but UEFA said on Thursday afternoon that its [control, ethics and disciplinary body “has decided… to close the disciplinary proceedings opened for racist or discriminatory behaviour.”

In response to the news, Batshuayi laughed at the decision on Twitter:

UEFA also charged Atalanta with the setting-off of fireworks, throwing of objects and blocked stairways, while Dortmund were charged with the setting-off of fireworks and throwing of objects.
