Bio

Jude Victor William Bellingham is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund.

Bellingham joined Birmingham City as an under-8, became the club’s youngest ever first-team player when he made his senior debut in August 2019, at the age of 16 years, 38 days, and played regularly during the 2019–20 season.

He joined Borussia Dortmund in July 2020, and in his first competitive match became their youngest ever goalscorer.

Jude Victor William Bellingham was born on 29 June 2003 in Stourbridge, West Midlands.

He is the eldest son of Denise and Mark Bellingham.

Mark works as a sergeant in the West Midlands Police and was a prolific goalscorer in non-League football.

Bellingham’s younger brother, Jobe, is a Birmingham City player.

 

Team
Team – Birmingham

He was linked with moves to numerous major clubs in January 2020; on deadline day, Birmingham were reported to have turned down a £20 million bid from Manchester United.

Bellingham continued as a first-team regular, and by the time the season was suspended because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

He remained an integral part of the team once the season resumed behind closed doors.

In appreciation of what Bellingham achieved in such a short time with the first team, the club announced that they would retire his number 22 shirt, “to remember one of our own and to inspire others.”

At the EFL Awards, he was named both Championship Apprentice of the Year and EFL Young Player of the Season.

 

Team – Borussia Dortmund, Germany

It had long become obvious that Bellingham would leave Birmingham, and it was reported that he and his father had visited several major clubs, of which Manchester United and Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund were the favourites.

Impressed by Dortmund’s record of including young players as regulars in the first team, as evidenced by the likes of Jadon Sancho, that became his destination of choice.

He flew to Germany for a medical, and the transfer was confirmed on 20 July 2020: he would join after Birmingham’s last match of the season.

The undisclosed fee was understood by Sky Sports to be an initial £25 million – making him the most expensive 17-year-old in history – plus “several million more” dependent on performance-related criteria.

Jude Bellingham is the most expensive footballer of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

His CIES rating is 202 million euros.

 

International
England

In England’s games against Iran, Bellingham opened the scoring.

England ambushed Iran and won the match 6-2.

The match was played on the November 21, 2022 as part of 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Born in Jamaica to Jamaican parents, Sterling moved to London at the age of five.

He began his career at Queens Park Rangers before signing for Liverpool in 2010.

He was awarded the Golden Boy award in 2014.

In July 2015, following a lengthy dispute over a new contract, he was signed by Manchester City in a transfer potentially worth £49 million, the highest transfer fee ever paid for an English player at the time.

He went on to help Manchester City win back-to-back Premier League titles in the 2017–18 and 2018–19 seasons.

In the 2018–19 season, he was named to the PFA Premier League Team of the Year and won the PFA Young Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year.

 

Early life

Sterling was born in a Christian family in Kingston, Jamaica, and spent his early years there.

His mother, Nadine Clarke, was previously a competitive athlete in the Jamaican national athletics team; Sterling credits her for his unique running style.

At the age of five, he immigrated to Neasden, London, with his mother.

Nadine Clarke met Phillip Slayter in Jamaica.

They gave birth to Raheem Sterling in 1994.

In 1996, Phillip Slayter was shot several times while crossing a “gang border” in Jamaica, Kingston.

Raheem Sterling was two years old at the time.

 

Personal Life

In 2013, citing the influence of his mother, Sterling was quoted as saying he was “not 100 per cent religious but my belief is strong.

When the time is right, I will fully be Christian.” He added that he put his faith in God and that he prays regularly.

He has one daughter, Melody Rose, born in 2012 after a brief relationship.

His middle-name Shaquille comes from his grandmother, who was living in America at the time and wanted to name him after Shaquille O’Neal.

In June 2017, following the Grenfell Tower fire in which 71 people died, Sterling made a “substantial” donation to those affected by the fire.

On 16 December 2017, Sterling was attacked outside Manchester City’s training ground by a man who used racist language towards him.

Four days later, 29-year-old Karl Anderson, a convicted football hooligan, pleaded guilty to racially aggravated common assault and was sentenced to 16 weeks in prison and a £100 fine.

The Guardian praised Sterling’s resilience and courage in deciding to play only four hours afterwards.

Sterling has an M16 rifle tattooed on his leg for which he received criticism from anti-violence groups; in response Sterling said that the tattoo had deeper meaning and referred to his father who was killed when Sterling was two years old.

There has been criticism of how the British tabloid media, such as The Sun, cover and treat Sterling with articles being deemed unfair and racist by pundits including Ian Wright.

Sterling has been named as one of the 100 most influential Black Britons, with his inclusion in the annual Powerlist in both the 2020 and 2021 editions.

Sterling was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2021 Birthday Honours for services to racial equality in sport.

In November 2021, Sterling launched his own charitable foundation at the Ark Elvin Academy, his former school. The Raheem Sterling Foundation will ‘educate, empower and inspire young people to become better prepared for the future and to embrace opportunities to achieve greater social mobility.’ Speaking at the launch, Sterling said: “My foundation is built on my experiences, successes and the many challenges I overcame, I now want to help young people achieve and be the best they can be.”

Grealish joined Aston Villa at the age of six, and made his debut for the club in May 2014, following a loan at Notts County.

In 2021, Grealish signed for Manchester City in a transfer deal worth £100 million, making him the most expensive English player ever.

Born in England and having Irish ancestry, Grealish was eligible to represent either England or the Republic of Ireland internationally, Grealish was capped by the Republic of Ireland up to under-21 level before confirming his decision to play for England in April 2016.

Early Life

Grealish was born in Birmingham, West Midlands.

Grealish is of Irish descent, through his maternal grandfather from County Dublin, his paternal grandfather from Gort, County Galway, and his paternal grandmother from Sneem, County Kerry.

Grealish’s younger brother, Keelan, died of sudden infant death syndrome in April 2000 at the age of nine months.

His great-great-grandfather, Billy Garraty, was also a footballer, who earned one England cap and won the 1905 FA Cup Final with Aston Villa.

 

Style of Play

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood said in May 2015 that Grealish was learning from his friendship with his midfield partner, the experienced Joe Cole.

Sherwood considered Cole a role model for Grealish’s private life, as he “didn’t read too much about Joe being on the front pages”.

On 12 February 2021, in an interview with Talksport, Aston Villa teammate Emiliano Martínez described Grealish as “the most talented player [he had] ever seen” and expressed surprise that he had not played more games for England.

Martínez went on to say: “he never gives the ball away. When I see Grealish running, it’s always a shot on target or a corner for us. He will drive past two or three players“.

Martínez also drew comparisons of Grealish to his Argentina teammate, Lionel Messi.

When writing for The Athletic in 2019, sports journalist Michael Cox described Grealish as an “old-school player,” due to his playing style.
