Belgium coach Roberto Martinez held a "clear the air" session with Christian Benteke after the Crystal Palace striker complained about his lack of participation in the national team.
Benteke, 30, said he was very disappointed in the European Championships after playing only six minutes in the group stage match against Finland and demanded Martinez reveal the things he needs from him to participate more in the matches. "I want to know what Martinez needs from me," he added in an interview this week. "When the national team calls me, I expect to participate and represent my country. I want to know the things he needs from me. I would like a dialogue between the coach of the national team and one of his players. "During the European Championship, I did not want to talk about personal matters, but I think now is the time to sit down and talk."
Martinez said he understood Benteke’s frustration on the eve of a World Cup qualifier match in Estonia on Thursday. “We talked and exchanged ideas,” the coach said. “I want the players to feel satisfied and happy even when they are away from matches. I want to watch avid players play and prove themselves. Christian has always shown that and because of that he is still in our accounts in the national team.”
