Ex-Birmingham mentor: Chelsea as good a stage as Man Utd for Bellingham

Former Birmingham City youth coach Sam Manoochehri can see Jude Bellingham thriving with Manchester United.

Manoochehri worked directly with Bellingham for four years.

He told the Mirror: “Man United, it might be a nice fit for Jude, with a rejuvenated team, talk of Aston Villa's Jack Grealish going over there.

“But Dortmund would also suit, the recent profile of players that have come through that system, the likes of Jadon Sancho. Jude would fit that mould too.

“And look at what's going on at Chelsea now. A lot of good young players in that team.

"Billy Gilmour the most recent one to impress, he is now shining on the big stage.

“However Jude has got to make sure that his next move, is to a club where he plays. If not, I don't think there is any problem with him staying at Birmingham."
