Brighton attacker Trossard tells Belgium coach Martinez: I can only prove myself if you play me!

Brighton attacker Leandro Trossard has rejected claims he and Eden Hazard cannot play in the same team.

There’s been suggestions in Belgium that either Trossard or Real Madrid attacker Hazard can only play in the one spot.

“I don’t understand that discussion,” Trossard told the Belang van Limburg.

“Eden and I can also play together. But also my achievements speak for themselves, who would say I have to do more… . I wouldn’t know what.

“I have proven in recent months that I am ready for a starting place!

“I think I have never been disappointed when I was allowed to play. It is just not fair of (Roberto) Martinez to say that I now also have to bring it to the Devils!”
