Borussia Dortmund coach Favre excited working with Bellingham: Easy with such a talent

Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre is excited to be working with England youth international Jude Bellingham.

The midfielder left Birmingham City last month to sign for BVB.

Favre stated this morning: “First of all, I am interested in one thing: the game intelligence. I don't look at the date of birth of someone like Bellingham. He has the technical skills, he feels the space. That's why it is easy for me to work with such talent.

“Of course I'm looking forward to a player like him. I got to know him better during the preseason. I like how he handles the ball and how he can defend it. Jude has many tactical capabilities and an amazing presence.

"He can play as a six or eight, plays good passes, seeks the goal. Various systems are possible with him. It's all very, very interesting."
