Belgium national team coach Roberto Martinez is concerned by the reduced gametime received by Toby Alderweireld ever since his return from a hamstring problem in February. The versatile defender has earned just three appearances since his injury comeback and just one of those have come in the Premier League.

In a report covered by Football London, Martinez admitted that Belgium could be hampered during the summer with Alderweireld not able to maintain a string of games in the playing XI, he said:"Obviously it’s been a concern, because Toby has been Mr Consistency in the last few seasons. Remember, he had a great partnership with Jan Vertonghen.
