Jude Bellingham discussing his main motivation in football has gone viral, he's so mature for his age

A video of Jude Bellingham discussing his main motivations in football has gone viral, with the England star commended for his mature response.

Bellingham only recently turned 19 and has already achieved so much in the game. He was Birmingham City's youngest ever player aged 16 and had his shirt number retired by the club when his career had only got going.

He has since gone on to play at the highest level for Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League - as well as turning out for England at the Euros last year.

Plenty of exciting English prospects have come and gone but Bellingham is in his own league after taking the brave step to move to Germany in order to further his career.

He has his head firmly screwed on his shoulders and his maturity shone through when he was talking about what he loves most about playing football at the top level.

Money is not what drives the midfielder - instead it's the ability to create moments and memories that will last.

"That kind of reaction to what you've managed to achieve is priceless really," Bellingham said on the BVB Podcast.

|You can have all the money you want from playing football, you can buy whatever you want - but being appreciated like that for creating so many memories for so many people - winning the league, winning however many cups, winning the league, winning the Champions League - that lives longer than any car you can buy or any house you can buy.

"That's what motivates me in football, to create memories that not only I'll remember forever but other people remember forever as well."

Bellingham is closing in on 100 appearances for Dortmund and has a contract until 2025. He has, however, been heavily linked with a move back to England with Liverpool in the near future but a deal in this transfer window is out of question.
