Mats Hummels leads the way in giving Jude Bellingham huge compliment

Mats Hummels has given Jude Bellingham a huge compliment by saying he’s one of the most mature teenagers he’s come across.

This year has proved to be a breakout campaign for Bellingham, who hit the headlines when he moved to Borussia Dortmund for £25 million, making him the most expensive 17-year-old in history.

He made a total of 46 outings for the German side and even was part of England’s Euro 2020 campaign.

And veteran defender Hummels says that the teenager is an absolute delight to work alongside.

“He is the most mature 18-year-old player I have ever seen,” he told DAZN.

“Jude is already someone who leads the way and he’s also one of the loudest in the team. He’s a great kid, I think I’ve told him about 25 times now that I just love him.”

Hendo approves

Jordan Henderson, another seasoned professional, also spoke about his fondness for the youngster, having played with him for England.

‘Jude is a fantastic player,’ said Henderson, who does not usually hand out compliments so readily. ‘Even at such a young age, he shows fantastic maturity on and off the field. You can see how hungry he is to be a top player and has all the attributes to do that.¬†

‘I tried to help as much as I could but, to be honest, he is a top player who has shown that in the big games for Dortmund. I see him going from strength to strength all the time. 

‘I don’t want to praise him too much and put too much pressure on him but he’s got a very good head on his shoulders.

‘I’m told he has good people around him and a good family, and you can see that is an important part of him. 

‘I think he will be a top player going forward. I watch him for Dortmund and the way he performs is outstanding.’
