Former Chelsea assistant manager Steve Holland has told The Guardian that England midfielder Jude Bellingham is like Didier Drogba. Chelsea have been heavily linked with the 19 years old who would probably cost them £ 130 million.
Bellingham has been ridiculous for The Three lions on the big stage of the Qatar World Cup. He is currently termed as one of the best young midfielder in the world. It is appropriate to say that he’s showing his worth.
He started his World Cup campaign with a goal against Iran and has been the best player for England. He yet again showed an all-round performance against Senegal in the Round of 16.
Holland claims Bellingham shows similar traits to Drogba
Bellingham’s mental attributes are something that have impressed most of Holland. He has compared them to Blues legends.
“He’s unique. We’ve talked about Messi and those special techniques. What makes the top, top ones is the mentality, the ambition every day to push and be competitive. There were a few at Chelsea I felt were always there in training.”
“Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and John Terry come to mind. “There were others. Players that weren’t super-gifted physically or super-gifted technically, but the mental aspect of it took them to a different level of performance. Jude has those mental attributes. There has been an evolution physically in the last 12 months. It has taken him to another level.”
