However, one person was particularly impressed with the youngster Manchester City ace Greyish.

The £100m man called Bellingham “scary” good and praised the ex-Birmingham City midfielder for his maturity beyond his years.

Grealish gushed, “I haven’t actually[played with a teenager who’s that good]. It’s scary how good he is at 18.

“He’s just so mature. He’s built like he’s my age at 26. He has so many technical skills and he is mature for his age.”

Grealish went on to joke that Bellingham is miles ahead of his 18-year-old talent.

He continued: “I can tell you one thing, I wasn’t nearly as good at 18. I was in Notts County (on loan from Villa) and I was a skinny little thing too.

“You see talented 18 or 19-year-old kids, but not many are as mature as he is on the pitch. He’s so versatile and can play in a lot of different positions on the pitch.

“He can be a six, an eight, or a ten. He was good to play with and I think it was the first time I played with him. It’s nice to play with another Brummie.”
