Carlo Ancelotti refuses to compare Bellingham with Zidane

Jude Bellingham has made an incredible start to his Real Madrid career.

The 20-year-old summer signing has been in spectacular form the Galacticos registerling 15 goals and four assists in 16 appearances in all competitions.

He has found the net in every Champions League game for the club this season and has drawn comparisons with Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane.

Bellingham’s impact has been compared with the Frenchman who is widely regarded as one of the club’s best-ever players.

The England international scored and assisted in Real Madrid’s 4-2 win over Italian giants Napoli in the Champions League.

He completed the game with 63 out of 68 passes with an accuracy of 93% and was phenomenal throughout the tie.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti was questioned about the similarities between Bellingham and Zidane but the Italian coach struggled to compare them.

“It’s hard to compare him with Zidane. They are two different generations. Bellingham has presence in the box that Zidane did not have and Zidane had an individual quality that Bellingham does not have,” he told reporters.

“Modern football wants players who are physically strong and able to cover a lot of field quickly.”
