That was explained by the powerful midfielder in “TheTimes“: “I will be here next season. Ready and really excited,” said the England international.

The excellent duel and preparer is now in his third year with the Black and Yellows and is one of the frequent players.

In his first season, Bellingham made 46 appearances (four goals, four assists), and in 2021/22 it was a whopping 44 games in which he scored a very good six goals and provided 14 assists.

This look at the statistics alone shows how well the assertive, but also dynamic, technically adept and dribbling player has developed.

With a top speed of “only” 32.92 km/h, he is not exactly the fastest professional in the Bundesliga, but he makes up for it with his positional play, a very good eye and his excellent passes.

In addition, he does not let himself be shaken off in midfield and is a terrier who stresses his opponents, often provoking ball wins and also leading with his winning mentality.

Open eyes!  Jude Bellingham (18) has even more potential and, if he stays fit, could play an even more important role at Borussia Dortmund in the new season.

That always lifted and sets him apart from some teammates. Due to the upcoming upheaval, the quality of the squad could increase overall – despite the departure of Erling Haaland (21), who will not be easy to catch.

But the defensive in particular should be much more stable with Niklas Süle (26), Nico Schlotterbeck (22), Gregor Kobel (23) and Bellingham. Finally, there are two more experienced players with Emre Can (28) and Mats Hummels (33).

Together they fuel the hope that BVB will not have to accept such a flood of goals again.

On the offensive you can look forward to talents like Jamie Bynoe-Gittens (17) and possibly other top talents like the 1.93 meter tall attacker Bradley Fink (19), who scored a total of 36 goals in 38 appearances this season and gave 13 assists.

The Swiss U20 international has also scored twice in the U23s, which played a solid role in the 3rd division.

It is quite possible that he or other rough diamonds will make the leap to the professionals. But they could also get additional reinforcements from outside.
