Roy Keane hails ‘absolutely amazing’ Jude Bellingham and compares him to Manchester United legend Paul Scholes

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has hailed ‘absolutely amazing’ England star Jude Bellingham and compared him to former team-mates Paul Scholes and Bryan Robson.

The 19-year-old was England’s star performer in an impressive 6-2 victory against Iran in Doha on Monday.

The midfielder opened the scoring with an expert header from Luke Shaw’s cross midway through the first half and he orchestrated the Three Lions’ play from his central midfield position.

Bellingham is expected to leave Dortmund at the end of the season and there’s already an intense battle on between Europe’s elite clubs to secure his signature

But Keane is clear about the midfielder’s qualities, with the usually difficult to impress Irishman hailing Bellingham.

Absolutely amazing, I think he is brilliant now. Absolutely brilliant, he’s made a point there about adding more goals to his game at international level, he does score at club level,’ Keane said.

‘He plays with a maturity, he’s got everything you want in a midfielder in the middle of the park in terms of his physique, his maturity, his decision making, his skill.

‘This finish here is fantastic. You remember all the brilliant England midfielders over the years people like Bryan Robson, Scholesy, Lampard and Gerrard.

‘If you can add to that to your game, that final bit of adding goals. As I said I think he’s a brilliant player anyway and this is a brilliant goal.

‘In his interview afterwards he comes across as a really good kid, playing very mature. The kid has got everything.’
