A bit of banter between football stars always provides us with some wholesome entertainment, interactions on Jude Bellingham’s recent post were no exception.
The Borussia Dortmund star made headlines following the Der Klassiker on Saturday as he made some scathing remarks confronting referee Felix Zwayer.
The English midfielder wasn’t the only one questioning the referee’s judgment as teammate Erling Haaland and manager Marco Rose also expressed their displeasure regarding the officiating.
Though, Bellingham’s comments led to a criminal offence being filed against the 18-year-old.
Charged for “unsportsmanlike behaviour” by the German FA, Bellingham managed to escape a ban and court appearance but was instead handed a €40,000 fine on Tuesday.
Mings caught taking the p*ss
Bellingham posted a series of pictures, dressed elegantly and hence the comparisons to James Bond came naturally, including teammate Donyell Malen who commented “Baby Bond”.
The pick of the lot however was definitely a hysterical comment by fellow Three Lions teammate Tyrone Mings.
The Aston Villa defender, while referencing Bellingham’s recent tryst with the German FA, wrote, “Outfit for court bro?”, sending the internet into a fit of laughter due to the audacity of the comment.
Bellingham looked a fan too as he replied with laughter emojis.
It is unlikely that the 18-year-old will have to appear in court to defend his statements, but at least this saga gave us a moment of elite banter.
