The sky is the limit
Kalvin Phillips has insisted that there are no words to express how talented Jude Bellingham is while claiming the “sky is the limit” for his England teammate. Bellingham became one of the best young players in European football, and last summer was snapped up from Birmingham City by Borussia Dortmund for £21 million. The 17-year-olds performances for Dortmund caught the eye of Gareth Southgate, who has handed him three senior England caps already, the latest of which saw him make a star turn on his full debut against Austria. Leeds star Phillips, who was named in Southgate’s 26-man squad for Euro 2020 alongside Bellingham, has been blown away by the teenager’s abilities and maturity levels in the Three Lions camp.
Jude has got the world at his feet
Phillips told reporters about his admiration for Bellingham: “I am not a 17-year-old who is as talented as what he is. I don’t even think I’m as talented as him, to be honest. He’s a great player, a great guy, and he has got the world at his feet. Honestly, there are no words to describe how talented he is, as you can see throughout his career at Birmingham and his move to Dortmund, which is a massive move for such a young kid. The way he performed in certain games in the Champions League against Manchester City, just on the highest stage, it was like he was already ready to be there.”
“For such a young kid at the age of 17, you look at him and cannot believe that he is 17 years old, you cannot believe it, because he is so big, he is so strong, so powerful. He’s a perfect guy, so it’s nice to rub shoulders with a young guy who is doing so well, and now the sky’s the limit for him.”
