Jude Bellingham plants kiss on Haaland after hijacking Dortmund ace’s interview

Jude Bellingham planted a cheeky kiss on Erling Haaland's cheek after hijacking the Borussia Dortmund star's post-match interview.

Bellingham, 18, was instrumental as the Bundesliga side got their Champions League campaign off to a winning start against Besiktas.

The teen midfielder fired Dortmund ahead after 20 minutes, and turned provider on the stroke of half-time as Haaland swept home.

Besiktas star Javi Montero pulled a goal back in injury time to set up a nervy finish, but the German giants held on to record a 2-1 win in their opening match in Group C.

Victory wouldn't have been possible without the contribution of Bellingham and Haaland, and the pair combined again after the game for a jokey moment during a TV interview.

As the Norwegian striker was being questioned about his performance, England star Bellingham appeared in front of the camera and planted a cheeky kiss on his team-mate's cheek.

The kiss brought a laugh and smile from Haaland, who was then asked about the performance of the youngster.

He replied: "He was amazing. He’s 18 – three years younger than me – it’s crazy! What can I say? He’s amazing."

Haaland has now scored 21 goals in 17 Champions League matches, but the 21-year-old isn't one for getting hung up on statistics.

He continued: "I don't really think too much about it. You know my love for the Champions League and how much I enjoy it, so I'm just enjoying the game.

"I'm a goalscorer so I need to score goals, that's my job, so yeah, that's how it is.

Asked about the defensive side of the team, Haaland said: "Yeah, we won. Of course. we let in one goal but we scored two, so I'm happy."

He was then challenged on whether Dortmund, with their attacking talents, can go all the way in his season's Champions League.

"It's a good question", Haaland replied. "I don't think too much about that. I think game-by-game and then we will see."
