Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi has revealed he is happy to be with the Belgium national team, admitting he feels like he is trusted there but not at his loan club Crystal Palace.

The 27-year-old, who is on loan at Palace from Chelsea, has admitted he is frustrated with life at Roy Hodgson’s side.

“I get a breath of renewed energy when I come into the national team, because it’s very hard for me at my club,” Batshuayi said after the match against Belarus.

“The club and the national team are different. The coach, the team members and the system are different from that at Palace.

“With the Red Devils, I feel a lot of trust from the coach; trust that I do not get there [at Palace].

“With [Belgium head coach Roberto] Martinez, we talk to each other a lot, even when I’m back at my club. I give 200 per cent not to disappoint him.”
