SPAL coach Pep Clotet has spoken of working with Jude Bellingham at Birmingham City.

Clotet worked with Bellingham at 16 before he was sold to Borussia Dortmund.

He told TMW: "They are different players and situations. He still made his debut in professional football when I arrived at Birmingham City, he was just 16 and his was a truly exceptional case.

"It makes me happy to see everything he is achieving with Borussia Dortmund and the England national team. At the same time, Lorenzo (Colombo, on-loan from AC Milan) is doing his first steps and he is a footballer who can have a great future if he continues to work like this.

"My staff and I are very happy to work with him and we want to try to help him to grow and improve further."
