Stroppy Jude Bellingham seen shoving Chelsea star and cameraman after defeat

Jude Bellingham has been scolded online for petulantly 'acting out' in the aftermath of Dortmund's Champions League exit at the hands of Chelsea on Tuesday.

The Blues sealed a desperately-needed 2-0 win on the night to book their place in the quarter-finals and take a little weight off the presumably knackered shoulders of Graham Potter.

It was a thoroughly deserved victory, but that didn't stop Bellingham from throwing a hissy fit after the final whistle, with footage emerging of the England midfielder shoving Chelsea defender Marc Cucurella, pushing a cameraman and flinging a water bottle about.

Chelsea fans ripped into the youngster on social media, branding his antics "pathetic".

"Bellingham being a stroppy git after getting beat, how pathetic," one fan tweeted. Another said: "What a sore loser, get back to the dressing room you idiot."

A third fan quipped: "Oh THERE'S Bellingham … sorry, hadn't seen him all night."

Does Bellingham have an attitude problem or is it just 'passion'? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

In truth, Bellingham did have a quiet evening, though he very nearly nabbed a goal after firing a close-range volley wide following a corner scramble in the second half.

He was lucky to escape punishment in the final seconds after flooring Three Lions team-mate Reece James with a horror lunge – much to the fury of Chelsea defender Thiago Silva, who launched an X-rated tirade at the Dortmund man while watching on from the stands.

It isn't the first time Bellingham, 19, has been accused of petulance and illdiscipline. In February last year he was seen screaming "you're f****** s***" at team-mate Nico Schulz after the defender mis-placed a pass to him, and was heard shouting something similarly vulgar at an opponent during England's win over Wales at the World Cup in November.

Chelsea meanwhile are riding high after recording arguably their biggest win of the season to progress 2-1 on aggregate. Raheem Sterling gave them the lead just before half-time before Kai Havertz added a second from the penalty spot – though not without controversy.

Firstly, the spot-kick was awarded after one of those 'impossible to get out of the way' handballs, and Havertz ended up hitting the post with his initial effort, but was let off the hook after being told to re-take it due to Dortmund encroachment into the box.

That being said, Chelsea, and particularly Graham Potter, will feel that that sort of fortune has been long overdue.
