Bellingham tipped to emulate Scholes
Old Trafford legend Roy Keane believe Manchester United target Jude Bellingam will become an all-time great England midfielder like Paul Scholes – if he continues his scoring form.
Bellingham, 19, bagged his first goal in 18 internationals to launch the Three Lions’ 6-2 defeat of Iran yesterday
And Keane believes the Borussia Dortmund star – also wanted by Man City, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Liverpool – has “everything”.
The Irish hardman said: “Absolutely amazing, I think he is brilliant now. Absolutely brilliant,
“He’s made a point there about adding more goals to his game at international level, he does score at club level,’ Keane said.
“He plays with a maturity, he’s got everything you want in a midfielder in the middle of the park in terms of his physique, his maturity, his decision making, his skill.
“This finish here is fantastic. You remember all the brilliant England midfielders over the years people like Bryan Robson, Scholesy, Lampard and Gerrard.
“If you can add to that to your game, that final bit of adding goals. As I said I think he’s a brilliant player anyway and this is a brilliant goal.
“In his interview afterwards he comes across as a really good kid, playing very mature. The kid has got everything.”
