Henderson on Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham
Jordan Henderson has acknowledged that given Jude Bellingham’s young and the dangers of excessive pressure, he needs to be cautious about what he says to the kid.
The burgeoning England star is more than capable of managing anything that is thrown his way if his most recent season is any clue.
“I can’t speak highly enough of him. I’m cautious of speaking too much around him because it is easy to forget how young he is and there is a lot of pressure on him.“
Liverpool’s chances on Bellingham
The former Birmingham City prospect is still at the top of the Reds’ transfer wish list, according to Fabrizio Romano. However, there will be a lot of competition to get his services as he is one of the hottest properties in Europe at the moment.
Given that Liverpool’s own financial situation is far worse than that of teams like Real Madrid and Manchester City, it can be hard to debate benefits in the race for Bellingham.
Having said that, it is impossible to ignore the friendship between the youngster and the Reds seasoned midfielder. We cannot ignore either Jurgen Klopp’s partnership with Borussia Dortmund. Not to mention the value the player places on his own personal growth.
They can’t promise anything in this transfer war. However, it’s reasonable to say that no one can count Liverpool out yet.
He is well-suited to play in attacking midfield. Especially because of his ability to force opponents to a challenge before quickly flicking a ball to a teammate. In this position, he is helpful in assisting his side in breaking down low-block defenses.
He performs best when making short passes. The 19-year-old enjoys being under pressure from opponents and is constantly trying to receive. Bellingham is confident when in control. Dortmund’s decision to invest a huge amount of money for a teenager who was at the time mostly untested was likely motivated in large part by his poise and self-belief.
Without a doubt, he will fit in well with Liverpool if he makes Anfield his home turf.
