MICHY BATSHUAYI struck twice for loan club Besiktas… after fans honoured him with a huge banner.
The Chelsea striker, 27, joined Besiktas on a season-long loan deal last month.
But Batshuayi failed to find the target in his first two appearances for the Turkish giants.
However, the Belgian had no such trouble in yesterday’s 3-0 home win against Yeni Malatyaspor.
Playing alongside stars including Miralem Pjanic and Alex Teixeira, Batshuayi helped himself to two goals as the champions secured all three points.
And Besiktas fans made sure the forward was aware of their support by unveiling a brilliant ‘Batman’ banner.
Batshuayi uses the comic book character’s title as a nickname.
And he took to Twitter thanking the Besiktas supporters for their show of love.

Batshuayi tweeted: “Love and respect. Thank you.”
The striker’s move to Turkey is his FIFTH loan since joining Chelsea from Marseille in 2016.

Despite scoring 25 goals in 77 games for the Blues, Batshuayi has since spent time at Borussia Dortmund and Valencia – as well as TWO spells with Crystal Palace.
His contract was set to expire this summer, but Chelsea extended it until 2023 before accepting Besiktas’ loan proposal.
And should Batshuayi continue impressing in the Super Lig, his new loan side could look to make the deal permanent next summer.
