Fans just realising Jude Bellingham’s brother Jobe has completely different name on his back to Real Madrid star | The Sun

FANS have been left shocked after discovering Jude Bellingham’s brother Jobe has a completely different name on the back of his shirt.

Jude has made a lightning start to life as a Real Madrid superstar following his £115m move from Borussia Dortmund.

The 20-year-old has scored five goals in four games for the LaLiga giants so far this season.

And he produced a masterclass on Tuesday as he produced another goal and created one for Harry Kane for England in their 3-1 win over Scotland.

He was not the only member of the Bellingham family to switch clubs this summer.

Younger brother Jobe, who is only 17, also left his elder sibling’s first team Birmingham City to join Championship rivals Sunderland.

And he has been impressing his new supporters himself with a series of fine displays for the Black Cats.

Jobe has scored twice in five appearances so far – but some fans have been left perplexed as to why he does NOT have his surname on the back of his shirt like Jude.

Instead, the midfielder has opted to have his forename above his No.7 instead.

One supporter previously asked online: “He doesn’t use his surname on his shirt?”

However, Sunderland manager Tony Mowbray has revealed the reason behind his new star’s decision.

He explained: “I think he’s trying to create his own identity.

“He doesn’t want to live off the back of his brother’s name; he wants to be the footballer that he is and show people what he can do.”

And ahead of today’s trip to QPR, Mowbray also added: “He’s an absolute diamond.

“He just loves football and wants to get better. He tests the coaches every day. He’s got a real growth mindset.

“At 17, it’s unbelievable. Where he can be in five years’ time, I’m not sure, but I’m really pleased with him. His greatest asset is that he wants to learn.”
