, saying Bellingham ‘has got the world at his feet’.
“I’ve definitely not seen a 17-year-old that is as talented as what he is. I don’t even think I am as talented as he is to be honest with you. He is a great player, a great lad as well 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 then his move to Dortmund, which is a massive move for a kid so young.
“The way he has performed in certain games in the Champions League against Manchester City, just on the highest stage, it was like he was ready to be there already.
"For a kid so young at 17, you look at him and you can’t quite believe that he’s 17 years old, you can’t believe it because he’s so big, he’s so strong, so powerful.
“He’s a very nice lad as well so it’s nice to rub shoulders with a young lad who is doing so well and now the sky’s the limit for him.”
