Jobe Bellingham becomes a ‘new meme’ as he goes viral with hilarious interview answer

Jobe Bellingham becomes a ‘new meme’ as he goes viral with a hilarious interview answer after Sunderland came away with a win at Cardiff.

The 18-year-old has become one of the EFL’s promising young talents and has so far scored seven times for the Black Cats, including Sunderland’s second goal in a 2-0 Championship victory over Cardiff on Good Friday.

But when questioned on his best position post-match – having played as defensive midfielder, a central midfielder, an attacking midfielder and a left winger – Bellingham gave a brutally honest response, saying: “At the minute I’m just learning really because I’ve got no idea what position I am.

“I suppose it’s quite exciting in a way because I’ll find out as the years go on.

“I’ll find out what I enjoy doing most but it’s up to the coaches to figure out where my attributes fit the team best.

“I’m not arsed where I play really – as long as I’m in red and white that’s fine.”

On Bellingham, interim Sunderland boss Mike Dodds said: “We should be excited about his performance, it’s something we can build on moving forward.

“He’s scored a goal and done well in the the game. He’s a coach’s dream, if I said go and play in goal he would just crack on with it.

“What he has got, which many number nines don’t have in this league, is unbelievable quality with his feet – a centre-midfielder playing up front.

“He gave us a platform to play off but you’ve got to remember he’s a second-year scholar playing in the Championship.

“He’s 18 and I know he carries the weight of his brother, which I think sometimes is unfair.

“But if you put that to one side, you’ve just seen a second-year scholar who has been exceptional and should be playing youth-team football.”

This goal tally became the highest achieved by a player aged 18 or under in a Championship season since Harvey Elliott, now at Liverpool, scored seven goals in the 2020-21 season for Blackburn.

Jobe’s brother Jude wrote after the Black Cats’ victory: “@SunderlandAFC whole team a joy to watch today!”

@LaurenSAFC92: He really is a special talent, yes he needed dropping before the international break, we could all see he needed a rest, he’s had one and came back with a unbelievable performance today, he just needs game/minutes managing better rather than burning him out.

@OrwiteTreacle: I’ve given the lad a lot of criticism lately, a lot of that down to how he’s been handled (played too much or not in his strongest position) But this is the attitude I love from the players. Please keep him CF for the rest of the season

@Philip_RJ89: This is the kind of attitude we need in our players. Selfless, willing to adapt and play in unfamiliar positions for the good of the team. Jobe’s had a real rollercoaster of a debut season for us, but his quality isn’t in doubt. #SAFC
