Belgium boss Martinez reveals fitness issues for Arsenal youngster Lokonga

Belgian coach Roberto Martinez admits he has concerns about Albert Sambi Lokonga’s fitness.

The Arsenal midfielder was not involved for Belgium in their 1-0 win over Belarus in Group E of the World Cup qualifiers.

The Gunners will be sweating over Lokonga’s availability for their Premier League clash against Norwich City this weekend.

“As far as Sambi is concerned, his omission was not a sporting choice,” the Belgium manager told reporters.

‚ÄúThere was a little warning, I wouldn’t speak of injury, but of discomfort, in training.

“So we decided not to take any risks given the complicated conditions. It was not a sporadic decision on my part.”
