Belgium manager Roberto Martinez says he won’t deploy Eden Hazard in the ‘false nine’ role.

Antonio Conte has often used Hazard, 27, as a striker in a number of high-profile matches this season.

But Martinez says it won’t be happening on the international scene.

“Eden Hazard is not a false nine for me,” said the former Everton boss.

“Chelsea can work with guys like Pedro around him but with us we have Romelu Lukaku, Michy Batshuayi, even Dries Mertens who can play there. I’m not going to put Hazard there.”
