The father of Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj won't play for Kosovo next month.

Kosovo are due to play Haiti in their first ever friendly, though they are yet to gain FIFA status.

And Januzaj's father Abedin says this is part of the reason the teenager won't play for them just yet.

"I was born there and I would like my son to play for the national team of my country but the matter is delicate because the Kosovo FA is not yet a member of FIFA," Abedin Januzaj told Kosovan TV station Kohavision.

"Maybe one day Adnan will play for Kosovo but for now, this will not happen. We have a lot of time to think about everything."
