Jude Bellingham’s reaction to being told people skipped school to watch him train is priceless

A video has captured Jude Bellingham's hilarious exchange with a couple of Borussia Dortmund fans after they revealed they missed school to watch him train.
Bellingham took time out of an open training session to sign some autographs and pose for pictures with fans.
Whilst interacting with people, a couple of school girls told him that they ditched a day of learning to watch him in the flesh and train.
One of the girls told the England international: "Jude, we didn't went to school today just to watch you train."
He replied: "Really? You need to be going to school."
The same girl who spoke to him, added: "Yes, one time."
The superstar midfielder brilliantly replied: "Yeah but one time is, you know..."
A mature answer from a man who is tender in age, but someone who has a good head on his shoulders.
He's highly thought of at Dortmund, who made him captain for their fixture against Cologne last October.
The 19-year-old said it was a 'dream come true' to skipper his side in the Bundesliga.
"It’s a dream come true really," he said. "When I first signed for this club, it’s something that I never even though was possible until I met the players and realised that they can give me the belief to one day be the captain. It’s something that other people always mentioned to me and I brushed off."
Bellingham added: "I’m just really grateful to be given the chance today, but ultimately a bit disappointed because we lost the game."
He's continued to enhance his incredible reputation this season following a superb World Cup campaign, where he starred for England in Qatar.
The former Birmingham City player remains the subject of intense transfer speculation, with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United, among others, believed to be keen on acquiring his services in the summer.
