Paul Lambert relaxed over Christian Benteke's Belgium inclusion

Paul Lambert says that he has no concerns over Christian Benteke being called up to the Belgium national team, despite suffering from a hip injury.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has said that he has no concerns over Christian Benteke's inclusion in the Belgium national squad.

The 22-year-old has been struggling with a hip injury, and as a result is not expected to return to club action for at least two weeks.

"The various physios have spoken to each other and there's no issue between us," BBC Sport quotes Lambert as saying. "I know the country has the right to have their player when they're together before an international so that's it.

"I worry about every one of my players and injuries when they're away for their countries."

The Midlands outfit will travel to Hull City in the Premier League this weekend.
