Bundesliga chief: Spurs whiz Sessegnon can follow Bellingham lead

Bundesliga chief Robert Klein says it is no surprise Jude Bellingham was called up to the England squad.

The 17-year-old has excelled for Borussia Dortmund since arriving from Birmingham City this past summer.

"He has got this style of play that suits the Bundesliga – fast and furious and very creative," Bundesliga CEO Robert Klein told theLondon Evening Standard.

"Jude is playing as we believed he could, which is that he could hold down a place [at Dortmund] and, more than that, contribute massively.

"He has made a good start and this story of English players coming over has really grown in the past three, four years.

"We've also got [Ryan] Sessegnon, who's just signed on loan [to Hoffenheim from Tottenham], and of course Sancho – who is really the one who has blazed this trail."
