Benteke is the latest Belgian to be lighting up the Premier League this season.
He said: "Do I feel Congolese or Belgian? I feel both - as I have dual-nationality I feel I belong to both countries. But it was not a difficult decision for me to choose Belgium.
"The Congolese FA never contacted me so it never became an issue.
"It hasn't done me any harm however as I now believe I play in the most powerful football league in the world."
