Bellingham is in red-hot form for Real Madrid in his debut season.
Jude Bellingham has earned praise from former Real Madrid legend, Gareth Bale. The Wales international delivered big success during his time at the Spanish capital.
The 20-year-old has made a fluent debut at Real Madrid since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund. He has scored 13 goals in his first 14 appearances for Los Blancos.
Gareth Bale was the last player from the United Kingdom to play for Real Madrid. We hardly see any UK player performing like this in Spaain. He offered valuable advice to Bellingham on how to succeed at the club. He was talking on the TV show A League of Their Own.
He said, “(He has to) play the game at Real Madrid, because if you don’t “be a puppet” for the media, you’ll get a lot of criticism. A lot of the Galacticos do what the press want, they play that game – it’s probably why I had such a downfall there.
“I didn’t want to (play the game for the media), I just wanted to play football and go home. It hindered me, and it made the press attack me a bit more.”
We all know the success stories of Gareth Bale who won trophies under Zidane. He formed a great partnership with Ronaldo. Bellingham is just carrying the legacy and his start is outstanding.
