'Jude lives in a different world': Gareth Southgate draws comparison between Bellingham and Beckham

England boss Gareth Southgate shared some words of appreciation for Jude Bellingham and recalled conversations he had with him about his career.

"There has been a change in terms of his positioning on the pitch, as he occupies a different role in Madrid," said Southgate.

"Afterwards, the conversations I had with him were about the fact that he now lives in a different world," Southgate revealed.

"He's still very young, he manages all this very well, but his life can't be that of a 20-year-old who can go wherever he wants, do whatever he wants.

"I spent some time talking to him, to get him to realize what that means. I played with David Beckham, who lived in a different world. This world is Jude's today.

"But it wouldn't be abnormal if he had a hard time processing it," Southgate added. "Especially since his breakout at Real was at a very high level."
