Jude Bellingham has explained his decision to join Borussia Dortmund instead of Manchester United last year.

“United have a fantastic squad, but I was so focused and so happy with the interest from Dortmund that this became my first choice,” Bellingham told FourFourTwo.

“It was never a case of this club over this club. For me, it was always Borussia Dortmund, and that’s it.

“The only thing I was bothered about while making my decision was playing football, and this was the best place to do that.

“It’s as clear as day that if you come here and do the right things, you’re going to get your opportunity.”
