Marc Wilmots says that he wants the “exact opposite” from Adnan Januzaj for Belgium than his role at Manchester United.

Belgium take on Wales in their next Euro 2016 qualifier at the weekend, with Januzaj expected to feature.

And Wilmots wants teenager Januzaj to do the reverse of what he does for his club.

“I saw the two games he played with Antonio Valencia behind him,” said Wilmots.

“Van Gaal asked him to stand close to the sidelines, I ask exactly the opposite, that he comes inside.

“I want him to come on to his left foot from the right to give that ball or shoot at goal.”

The 19-year-old has made nine Premier League appearances for Manchester United so far this season.
