The Mirror reported around the time of the incident; “UEFA’s control, ethics and disciplinary body will address the case on March 22.”

Less than a week before they are set to sit down and review it, Batshuayi appears to have suffered further racial abuse, this time on Instagram, and again from what look to be Atalanta supporters.

The 24-year-old posted the below screenshots on his Twitter page. The content of which is absolutely disgusting.

There is no place for racism of any form, in any level of society. When a talented young man, trying to make a name for himself in the football world, is repeatedly struck by abuse of this nature, it’s even more infuriating.

It remains to be seen whether UEFA will consider this as further evidence in their case against Atalanta and their supporters.
