Jude Bellingham has been one of England’s most exciting talents for many years, and he’s clearly learning a thing or two from his team-mates.
The Borussia Dortmund star burst onto the scene with Birmingham City but now plays alongside some of the best players in the world for club and country.
As well as making 91 appearances for the German giants, the 19-year-old has earned 15 caps for England as he prepares for a career at the top of the game.

Liverpool’s closest rivals in the Premier League title race are Manchester City, and if Bellingham moves to Anfield he will be trained to see them as the enemy.
