Jude Bellingham Following his Father’s Footstep
Though his father never played professional football, Jude has so much to learn from him and is currently following in his father’s footsteps.
Mark is his son’s first coach and urged him to play football from a very young age. His love for football also started after watching his father play.
“I used to watch him play all the time. It’s where I started to get that love for football. I think you can see in the way I play that I’ve watched the game from a young age. That non-league style of toughness and being gritty when you need to be is reflected in my game, and I do think that comes from watching my dad play – even though he never tackled!”
