“He’s unstoppable,” says Joe Cole, comparing the midfielder to Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.
Joe Cole, a former Chelsea midfielder, has praised Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham, comparing him to Frank Lampard. The England international stole the show for Borussia Dortmund in midweek, as the Bundesliga side defeated Sevilla 4-1 in the UEFA Champions League (UCL).
In the game, Bellingham scored one goal and assisted on another. Joe Cole waxed lyrical about the 19-year-old as he captained Borussia Dortmund to an easy victory away in Spain. The former Liverpool winger has also insisted that Bellingham was England’s best player on the pitch against Italy and Germany during the international break.
As reported by BT Sport, he stated
“Along with Erling Haaland, he’s the best young player in the world, that’s for sure,” he told BT Sport, as quoted by Sports Max.
“I saw him play for England in two Nations League games [against Italy and Germany], and he was our best player.”
Cole also compared Bellingham to former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard. “His father, I believe, was a semi-pro footballer, so he’s obviously been guided correctly,” he added. We grew up with Frank [Lampard], and his father was obviously a footballer, a top footballer, and Frank had this maturity about him… Bellingham has that as well, and combined with his undeniable God-given talent and drive, he’s unstoppable.”
