Adnan Januzaj's father has blasted recent comments made by Belgium manager Marc Wilmots regarding his son.
The 18-year old Manchester United midfielder is eligible to represent his country of birth - Belgium - as well as Albania, Serbia, Turkey, Croatia and England but has yet to commit to any of the six nations.
On the weekend, Wilmots said that the Belgian FA had previously contacted Januzaj about representing them but indicated that the young gun had made himself unavailable.
"It is impossible to negotiate with me," he told RTBF.
"The boy was born in Belgium, should he say that he wants to play for Belgium - from there, there is no haggling. I'm not going to play that game.
"The kid is available? He wants to play? Then perfect, okay, show me.
"If you're at the top level in Manchester or elsewhere, show me your skills and if I need you I will call. I make no promises, to Januzaj or any person!"
But Abedin Januzaj has hit back at Wilmots, suggesting these words will not help Belgium's cause.
"This is shameless," he told Belgian media.
"We never reacted on selections, phone calls or letters from the Belgian FA.
"They are requesting his selection, not us. Wilmots' remarks won't make it easier now. We are angry about these comments."
