Watch: Henderson & Bellingham’s hilarious reaction when asked about Liverpool move
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was asked about Jude Bellingham’s future and whether or not he could see him at Anfield in the future.
Bellingham has been linked with a move to Liverpool for quite some time now and he could prove to be just what they are missing at the moment.
It’s no secret that Liverpool’s midfield three are getting on in age and that someone like Bellingham could propel them back to the top of the Premier League.
The 19-year-old was a star in England’s 3-0 win over Senegal. The Borussia Dortmund youngster set up Henderson’s opening goal and was one of England’s best players throughout the game.
“It’s very rare you see a midfield player as comfortable in his own half as in the attacking half,” Gary Neville told ITV. “He looks like he can do absolutely everything. Is he a holding player, an attacking player? He’s everything in one.
“Physically he’s fantastic, so young but it’s the composure, maturity and fearlessness I can’t get my head around.
“I watched players play for England for many years, the weight of the shirt was enormous. He just doesn’t feel it at all, he looks like he belongs out there, like he wants it and needs it in his life.”
Fellow ITV pundit Roy Keane added: “I’ve not seen a young midfielder perform like that for years. You usually see it from a world-class player who’s 26, 27. Everything he does in the game. We talk about what goes on in his brain.
“He’s got that maturity, his decision-making, what’s going on upstairs – it’s huge for a midfielder. End product, final pass, the kid has everything.”
It’s fair to say that Bellingham has had quite the impression at the World Cup so far and he is only expected to get better as he progresses in his career.
Bellingham came through the youth ranks of Birmingham City and his talents in the Championship were quickly noticed by Europe’s elite clubs.
Since his move to Germany in 2020 he hasn’t looked back since. The 19-year-old has played 112 games for Dortmund and has scored 19 goals in the process.
Bellingham was full of praise for Henderson after England’s victory: “[It was a] Brilliant performance and I seen some of the rubbish that was said about him playing. It’s ridiculous, [Henderson is] so underrated technically and he’s delivered in a big game with a massive game so I think it’s about time he gets respect.
“I think when you have that much quality in the team, you don’t have to work on it much but we get given patterns and try to follow them as best as we can and when we have players that we do, they can play on one touch, two touch. You can break them down and be free.”
Time will tell if Bellingham will make the move to Liverpool in the summer and it’s probably fair to say that Henderson would enjoy playing with him at club level.
