Belgian international soccer player, Michy Batshuayi has done the unthinkable. Not, it wasn’t score a screamer. The former Chelsea star attempted a spinning kick on an opposition fan following an on-pitch brawl. Batshuayi, who plays for Turkish giants Fenerbahce scored a late winning goal against Trabzonspor to give his team a 3-2 victory.

Following the conclusion of the game, chaos erupted with Trabzonspor fans running onto the pitch to attack the opposition players. Fenerbahce player, Bright Osayi-Samuel can be seen punching a supporter in self-defence but it is the 30-year-old Premier League winner who has made headlines.

TRABZON, TURKIYE – MARCH 17: Osayi (21) of Fenerbahce gets a fight with a supporter after the Turkish Super Lig week 30 football match between Trabzonspor and Fenerbahce at Papara Park in Trabzon, Turkiye on March 17, 2024. (Photo by Hakan Burak Altunoz/Anadolu via Getty Images)

In the clip below, a fan is seen running towards Batshuayi, who reacts by throwing a spinning kick at the fan.

Batshuayi was clearly channelling either his inner Booker T or that of Edson Barboza, a man who in the world of MMA is famous for his spinning heel kick knockout of Liverpool’s Terry Etim.

The incident is the latest scandal in a season to forget for fans of Turkish football. These have included an attack on the referee by a club president (no, really, this happened),  the postponement of a Turkish Cup final in Saudi Arabia, and several protests against refereeing decisions.
