Heartwarming moment Jude Bellingham reunites with ex-Birmingham boss on Bernabeu pitch before Champions League clash

JUDE BELLINGHAM was reunited with former Birmingham manager Pep Clotet at the Bernabeu on Tuesday evening.

The England international, 20, was handed his first-team debut by the Spanish coach, 46, back in August 2019.

He went on to feature 44 times for the Blues before he joined Borussia Dortmund the following summer.

Now establishing himself as one of the best in the world at Real Madrid, Bellingham first embraced Clotet at El Clasico last month.

Bellingham scored a brace including a stoppage-time winner as Los Blancos ran out 2-1 winners.

And Clotet, who most recently managed Torpedo Moscow earlier this year, shared a picture of the pair together alongside a caption praising the midfielder.

He said: “What a joy to see you on the pitch again and see the player you are, @judebellingham.

“Thanks to @dazn_es and @squirante for the invitation to a massive game like #ElClasico and for capturing a really special re-encounter.”

To which Bellingham replied: “A pleasure as always to see you gaffer, thanks for everything!🤍”

Then on Tuesday evening, a video was shared by Giorgia Cenni of the pair meeting once more.

They shared some words by the side of the pitch during the warm-up at the Bernabeu.

Bellingham did not feature in the game as Real Madrid claimed a 3-0 win over Braga to book their place in the knockout stages.

But he is expected to return for their LaLiga clash at home to Valencia on Saturday.

Bellingham has scored 13 goals and provided three assists in 14 games since joining Real Madrid.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men sit second in the LaLiga table, two points adrift of surprise leaders Girona but two ahead of Barcelona.
