Rose hails record-breaking Bellingham after Besiktas victory

Thu 16 September 2021 | 7:53

By scoring against the Super Lig side, Bellingham became the youngest ever player to score in consecutive Champions League games, surpassing Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe, as well as becoming the youngest Englishman to score away from home in the Champions League.

Dortmund bagged a 2-1 victory over Besiktas

 to open their Champions League journey with a victory.

Dortmund opened the scoring through Bellingham inside 20 minutes, with the midfielder slotting through Destanoglu's legs from a tight angle before turning the provider to set Haaland up for a tap-in on the stroke of half-time. Besiktas pulled one back in the 94th-minute as Pjanic delivered a terrific free-kick into the box and Montero attacks it with conviction, thumping a header beyond Kobel.

 

"Jude is just a great guy. In every single way,"

 Rose told his post-match news conference on the 18-year-old English Midfielder.

"His mentality, the willingness to work for the team, the intensity with which he plays football, the will to win and of course the solutions he finds on the football pitch.

"The way he assists the second goal and scores the first himself is extraordinary. That's why we're glad to have such a boy with us."

 

Dortmund

 now have won all of their five matches against the Turkish opposition in the Champions League, by an aggregate scoreline of 15-3.

"It was a very difficult game for us,"

 

Rose 

added. 

"The atmosphere was great here. Besiktas are a very good team. The first 20 minutes they played with more intensity than we did. This caused us problems. We changed the system and the goal helped us to control the game a bit better.

"After that we scored the second goal just before the break and then we played well in the second half. We couldn’t manage to score the third goal and Besiktas put a lot of pressure on us in the end. A great performance. A great team. So that’s why we are very happy that we won here."
