Bellingham’s impressive moments
In England’s 3-0 victory over Ivory Coast recently, Jude Bellingham once again shone for the Three Lions. The Borussia Dortmund midfielder played brilliantly from the start when he was given a starting spot. And his performance will not only send a message to the England manager, but also to the teams watching him in the Premier League. Liverpool is one of them. It is no surprise that Jurgen Klopp’s side face a lot of competition, however, they have the advantage.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has heaped praise on the Dortmund star over the past week, although admits he is often reluctant to talk about fellow players: ” I don’t like to overestimate players, especially players. especially when they’re so young because everyone seems to do it pretty quickly. But I’ve been impressed with him. I like the way he plays.”
“I like his personality, that’s the most important thing. I like the way he treats himself. I have nothing but good things to say about him. He’s a great guy. , a great player and I’m sure he will get stronger as he gets older and matures.”
Henderson has made the former Birmingham City star an exception to his rule. And chances are there’s a reason for that. Henderson may have been tasked with persuading Bellingham to choose Anfield as his Premier League destination when he leaves Dortmund. Despite that, it is undeniable that Henderson himself admires Bellingham and finds it amusing to watch him play on the wing.
With the likes of James Milner, Thiago and Henderson all in their thirties, and speculation about Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who will soon enter the final year of their contracts, Bellingham will add much-needed youth. essential for Klopp’s midfield.
Henderson added: “He has leadership qualities but there’s no need to put that pressure on him right now. I know he’s going to be a top player.”
Bellingham is highly likely to follow Jadon Sancho back to the Premier League. It looks like Liverpool’s secret weapon, Henderson is doing his best to ensure that Anfield is where the midfielder chooses.
