Jude Bellingham needed his mother to save the day when he forgot his passport before flying with Borussia Dortmund.
Funny pictures of Bellingham patiently awaiting his mother Denise’s arrival at the airport with the required travel documents have surfaced on social media.
After the winter’s World Cup in Qatar, Dortmund has traveled to Marbella for a warm weather training camp since the Bundesliga won’t resume until January 20.
Teams have reunited for warm weather training ahead of the break, including Dortmund, who will participate in two friendlies in the Spanish city of Marbella.
The 19-year-old will continue to be an important member of Edin Terzic’s team because he has shown himself to be much more mature than his age would imply.
However, the England international was a little reckless while preparing for the vacation and neglected to include his passport, which is the most crucial item.
But there was a snag before the flight from Dortmund to Malaga, as Bellingham could be seen impatiently waiting outside for his mother to show up.
Bellingham’s mother, fortunately, intervened just in time, as cameras captured her joyously waving the footballer’s passport in his direction.
When she finally did, Bellingham smiled and held up his passport to the cameras while looking relieved.
The midfielder can now return to focusing on the field, where he has been having great success.
Some of the largest bidders in Europe, including Premier League heavyweights Manchester United, Manchester City, and Liverpool, have expressed interest in him.
Real Madrid is likewise sure that they can outbid their rivals for the young sensation’s signature.
A benefit for Jurgen Klopp and the company? liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson, Bellingham’s colleagues in England national team, are good friends.
The sporting director of the midfielder’s current team, Borussia Dortmund, has intimated that Liverpool would be the “preferred club” to do business with. The midfielder admired Steven Gerrard as a child.
However, as sources indicated, if his admirers want to recruit Europe’s hottest player in the summer, they will need to pony out close to £100 million upfront.
Dortmund won’t prevent him from leaving if he so chooses, but without a release clause, they are in control.
Despite still being a youngster, Bellingham has established himself as a Three Lions mainstay, scoring at the World Cup while dominating the Bundesliga and Champions League this year.
The young player scored for England against Iran in the FIFA World Cup group stage, then in the knockout rounds, he assisted against Senegal. Mats Hummels has referred to him as “the most mature 19-year-old player I’ve ever seen” because of performances like that.
Bellingham, who performed admirably for England at the World Cup, is the most sought-after player in Europe.
After safely arriving in Marbella, the 19-year-old will concentrate on club affairs with Dortmund, who will play Augsburg on January 22 and are once again in need of a victory.
