Looks like it’s not just his on the pitch performances that are impressing fans, but his off the pitch ones too.
Having made his breakthrough into the first team this season, Jude Bellingham has gone one step further and is now one of the first-team regulars at St Andrew’s. So much of a breakthrough that there are even reports of some of the biggest clubs in Europe are interested in bringing him on board. But for now though, his feet are planted firmly in B9.
He spoke after the draw against Millwall, but it wasn’t so much what he said that was getting the attention from the Birmingham City fans, it was the way he conducted the interview, with many of them pointing out how incredible it was to see someone like him talk with such confidence despite the fact he’s only 16, and how that comes across in his playing ability as well.
Super star in the making and a Blue nose, top lad!👍

Would you begrudge Bellingham a 'big money' move?
If he doesn’t get that move away, would it be wrong of me to suggest that he could be a captain for the Blues at some point in the future?
