'MY SEASON IS PROBABLY OVER' - Michy Batshuayi confirms heartbreaking injury on Twitter

Michy Batshuayi was on the receiving end of a tackle that is nearly certain to rule him out of the World Cup in today's Revierderby between Schalke and Borussia Dortmund.

He was forced from the field on a stretcher during that contest, with fears immediately raised as to his possible participation at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Batshuayi injured his left ankle late in Dortmund's 2-0 defeat at Schalke on Sunday and left the stadium in Gelsenkirchen on crutches.

"Well, it's not good news for now, my season is probably over and I won't be able to pay Dortmund back for their confidence", Batshuayi, who joined the Bundesliga club on loan from Chelsea in January, wrote on Twitter.

Batshuayi has scored nine times in 14 games since joining Dortmund on loan in the winter transfer window in a deal that runs out at the end of this campaign.

The government, however, said evacuations from Douma were ongoing and no Syrian government forces had entered the town. Syria's civil war, which began as a popular uprising against Assad, is now in its eighth year.

"Thank you all the unbelievable amount of love I received since yesterday".

The injury has come at a frightful time for Batshuayi, with his spot in Belgium's World Cup squad under threat if he can not recover in time. Wishing my teammates the best for the final days.

All eyes will now be on whether Batshuayi can be fit to take his place in Belgium's squad for the World Cup this summer.

Borussia Dortmund manager Peter Stoger fears Michy Batshuayi could face a "long time" on the sidelines.
