Jude Bellingham, the Real Madrid standout and recipient of the 2023 Kopa Trophy, was seen at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light, supporting his sibling Jobe Bellingham, a player for the Black Cats. Unfortunately, Sunderland suffered a 3-0 loss against Coventry, a fellow team in the EFL Championship.

The Bellingham brothers began their football journey at their local club, Birmingham City. The elder sibling ventured to the Bundesliga, joining Borussia Dortmund, where he gained prominence with impressive performances for both club and country. This led to his transfer to Spanish giants and 13-time UCL Champions Real Madrid in the summer of 2023. Meanwhile, Jobe remained at Birmingham City and swiftly rose through the ranks to establish himself.

The older Bellingham sibling arrived in Sunderland sporting a stylish look, featuring a jacket layered over a high-necked wool sweater, ahead of his brother’s EFL match against Coventry. This 20-year-old star won’t be back in action for Real Madrid until they face Mallorca at the Bernabeu in the new year. It seems he opted to return to the UK for Christmas and was present in the stands supporting his brother. Moreover, Jobe has been impressive for the Black Cats this season, scoring four goals to catch the eye of major clubs.

Jude’s brief appearance among the spectators sparked immense excitement among fans, leading many to comment on social media that the best player in the country is back home. Bellingham has been on fire in La Liga where he leads the league’s list of goal scorers this season, and Jobe may soon be following his older brother’s footsteps.

In the recent match at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light, the home team had more control of the ball and more shots, but the visitors won easily. Tatsuhiro Sakamoto scored just before halftime, Callum O’Hare added another goal in the 67th minute, and Kasey Palmer sealed the victory. This defeat is a setback for Sunderland’s goal of moving up to the EPL, a league they haven’t been in since the 2016-17 season.
