England World Cup star and one of football’s hottest properties Jude Bellingham was in Marbella last week.
The 19-year-old was involved in a short pre-season training trip with his current club Borussia Dortmund at the pitches on what was formerly the Dama del Noche golf course.
After his stellar performances at the World Cup, Bellingham has been linked with several top teams, including Real Madrid. Manchester City and Liverpool. Marbella Councilor for Sports, Manuel Cardeña, took the opportunity to award Bellingham a memento of his trip (below) and highlighted that Marbella was a popular destination for training camps.
Fans at the training pitch, including local Liverpool fan Bijan Benjamin ( Main picture) were able to get selfies with the player, who even managed a wry smile at the chants of “Bellingham’s a Scouser” – after the interest shown by Jurgen Klopp’s side.
