Roy Keane has praised reported Liverpool target Jude Bellingham on ITV (7:11pm, June 6, 2021).
The former Manchester United midfielder was impressed by the performance of Bellingham during England’s 1-0 win against Romania today.
The 17-year-old Borussia Dortmund midfielder came on as a substitute in the 65th minute.
The teenager looked very lively after he came on, was threatening from set pieces, and went close to scoring himself.
Eurosport reported in April that that Liverpool are among the clubs who are monitoring the 17-year-old midfielder.
Keane said about Bellingham on ITV (7:11pm, June 6, 2021): “I know it was 45 minutes today, but he looks a big, strong boy. He looked so comfortable up there.”
Former United star Keane is one of the best midfielders to have ever played in the Premier League.
The former Republic of Ireland international is not easily impressed.
Bellingham making an impression on Keane shows just how good a player he is.
And he is only 17.
Liverpool would be a better team with Bellingham in it.
Georginio Wijnaldum is leaving the Reds, and the Dortmund teenager could just replace him.
Bellingham played regularly for Dortmund this past season, both in the Bundesliga and in the Champions League.
Bellingham made 19 starts and 10 substitute appearances in the Bundesliga this past season.
The teenage midfielder also made eight starts and two substitute appearances in the Champions League for Dortmund.
