Liverpool fans will hope to see Jude Bellingham learning from Jordan Henderson next summer after young Borussia Dortmund midfielder labels captain a ‘legend’ in Instagram comment June 27, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer
Jude Bellingham is a big fan of Jordan Henderson and Liverpool fans will all be hoping that counts for something next summer.
The 18-year-old Borussia Dortmund midfielder continues to be linked with a move to Anfield, and a recent comment from him on a post from Henderson, has got many supporters saying the same thing.
A video posted by the Liverpool captain showed a clip from a series called ‘Never Done series’, where some of his teammates and former players can be seen praising the Reds skipper’s leadership and talent.
“Thank you to everyone who took part in this ‘Never Done’ series,” the skipper wrote in a caption alongside a video that was posted to his five million followers. “What people had to say in it means a lot to me and I will continue to give them my best going forward. Great job by @lozcast and @glencowie in putting this together and also @nikefootball, who have supported me since day one. More special memories to be made!”
It prompt responses from familiar faces in the game, including Tyrone Mings, Conor Coady and Kalvin Phillips all commenting.
But it was the reply from 18-year-old Bellingham that was quickly picked up by Reds fans.
The wonderkid simply wrote ‘legend’, which quickly attracted plenty of likes and replies.
Bellingham’s comment quickly received many replies and more than 1,000 likes.
It got Liverpool fans hoping he will be pulling on a red shirt and joining Henderson on Merseyside either this summer, or next.
Instagram user typical.soroush replied: “Here we go!” irfan_dice added: “Sign up broooo.” While user d0ngjun_y wrote: “come to Liverpool”.
Another, basaraslandogan, added: “You can be too bro”, in relation to Bellingham’s ‘legend’ comment.
Bellingham, who has made 89 appearances for Dortmund over the last two seasons, continues to be linked with a move to Liverpool.
Manager Jurgen Klopp is a huge fan, having earmarked him as his top target in 12 months time, while Henderson reckons ‘the sky is the limit for his England pal.
Considering Bellingham’s age, he was cautious when asked for his opinion in March, but said he had been impressed.
“He’s a great lad, a fantastic player and I’m sure he’ll go from strength to strength as he gets older and matures.
“When I watch him, he plays with such maturity even now. The sky is the limit for him really.
“I like the way he plays. I like his personality, which is the most important thing. I like the way he conducts himself. I’ve got nothing but good things to say about him.”
Liverpool fans are confident Manchester City’s pursuit of Kalvin Phillips, means they have a clear run on the midfielder.
But City boss Pep Guardiola is an equally big admirer of the teenager, and hopes Bellingham’s friendship with new recruit Erling Haaland can sway an eventual deal their way.
There is likely to be a tug-of-war between the Reds, Manchester City and Real Madrid next summer, with Bellingham to cost around £85million.
Los Blancos are hopeful of signing the England international, who has 15 caps for his country, to partner both new signing Aurelien Tchouameni, 22, and Eduardo Camavinga, 19, in midfield.
It remains to be seen where the highly-rated teenager will go, despite Dortmund remaining adamant their star midfielder is not for sale.
A move to Liverpool would suit all parties it seems, and given the Reds’ ageing midfield, he would add the much need youth.
It seems Liverpool’s new sporting director, Julian Ward, may have some persuading and fight on his hands if Liverpool are to get their man.
