Mpenza is back in his native Belgium for treatment on his hamstring

Plymouth Argyle's former Belgium international striker Emile Mpenza is back in his native country to get treatment for a hamstring problem.

The 30-year-old has missed Argyle's last three Championship matches with the problem and has gone back to Belgium to try and rehabilitate.

Manager Paul Sturrock expects Mpenza will be out for the next two weeks.

"Emile is back with his old physio who he's been under at all the clubs he's been at in the past," he said.

"We've got to decide what we do with him as to whether we leave him in rehab over there or we bring him back. That'll be decided after the Birmingham game," Sturrock added to BBC Spotlight.
