Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has departed the Belgium international camp due to injury.

This week Roberto Martinez’s Belgium will play their first pair of fixtures since the summer’s World Cup.

They face Scotland in a friendly clash on Friday night before opening their UEFA Nations League campaign against Iceland next Tuesday.

However, Martinez will have to make do without midfielder Fellaini.

The Belgian FA announced this week that 30-year-old Fellaini was set to miss both of the country’s upcoming fixtures.

According to the Evening Standard, Fellaini has picked up a minor back problem and has returned to United’s Carrington training base for treatment.
