Ex-youth coach: Bellingham and Borussia Dortmund made for eachother - at this time

Borussia Dortmund is the ideal club for Jude Bellingham.

So says his former youth coach Mike Dodds, who has worked with the teen for several years.

Bellingham left Birmingham City last month for Dortmund, choosing the Germans ahead of a rival offer from Manchester United.

Dodds told Ruhr Nachrichten: "Dortmund and Jude Bellingham are made for each other at this point in time, I think: Dortmund wants to train him further, and he will not stop working to become a better and better footballer.

“You have to expect it (that he will succeed), even if I don't want to raise expectations. What is important to me: As you have noticed, I am very impressed by him, even more by his mentality and personality than by his tactical and technical skills. You can be happy in Dortmund."
