Jude Bellingham doc profiles his rise from Blues beginnings to Dortmund move

England and Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham is the subject of a new documentary profiling his rapid rise.

The 18-year-old came through the ranks at Birmingham City and is the youngest-ever player to appear for the Blues. He made his debut at just 16 years and 38 days.

He was transferred to Dortmund last summer for a whopping £25million fee and he hasn’t looked back since, appearing in the Champions League and going to this summer’s Euros with England.

Birmingham famously retired the number 22 shirt last summer, in honour of the teen. Now, his former club have premiered a documentary charting his emergence.

The two-part series sees City the focus of episode one, with Dortmund the scene for the concluding episode.

The Birmingham video features an in-depth conversation with Bellingham inside his family home, and includes contributions from those who assisted his development.

Club legend Trevor Francis also featuresz. It was Francis’ record who Bellingham broke when he overtook him as the club’s youngest-ever player.

A Birmingham City statement said: “Predominantly filmed during the 2019/20 season, the exclusive production charts Bellingham’s meteoric rise from talented football prodigy to fully-fledged first team superstar and features never-seen-before footage of the generational talent who joined the Blues academy at the age of seven.

“Now supporters can relive those historic, record-breaking moments in the first of a two-part series.

“The second is being produced by Bellingham’s current team, Borussia Dortmund, where he has won DFB-Pokal and played in a UEFA Champions League quarter-final.”

The film is available to watch via Birmingham’s official YouTube channel.
