Aaron Leya Iseka: More to me than being brother of Chelsea striker Batshuayi

The kid brother of Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi insists he's his own man.

Aaron Leya Iseka joined Marseille from Anderlecht this summer, just as Batshuayi was being sold by OM to Chelsea.

The young striker, 18, told La Provence: "Is it useful to be the brother of Batshuayi? It's good, but sometimes not.

"Some think that, wherever I was, it is thanks to him. I personally do not think so. Before Marseille, I was pro in Anderlecht, at 16. In Brussels, some say I'm in Marseille thanks to him.

"While I have talked with Frank (Passi), he specifically talked and thought I could bring something. Today, he trusts me, I try to make it. This is not thanks to my brother that I am here."
