Ancelotti: Bellingham makes us forget that he is only 20

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has hailed ‘spectacular’ Jude Bellingham for his start as a Los Blancos player.

Jude Bellingham who joined Real Madrid from Dortmund last summer, now has scored eight goals after eight La Liga matches this season. He scored another two goals in Saturday’s 4-0 home win against Osasuna.

The English star also has scored twice for Real in the Champions League. The 20-year-old has scored 10 goals in his first 10 appearances for the club, matching Cristiano Ronaldo’s record in 2009.

After the match, Carlo Ancelotti admitted that Bellingham’s maturity makes them forget that he is only 20.

“He’s very good and has adapted very well. We as a club, and the fans, are lucky to have signed such a spectacular player. His maturity is remarkable, he makes us forget that he is only 20.”

Carlo Ancelotti also said nobody expected Bellingham to score so many goals at the start of his career as a Real Madrid player.

“Bellingham? No one expected him to score all this goals. His season is incredible.

“Bellingham is his usual self. He’s finding a lot of opportunities in attack and the fact that he doesn’t have a fixed position on the pitch, he does a lot of damage to opponents and nobody expected this level in terms of goals.

“It’s easier to study and analyse a player who has his position fixed and he doesn’t, so the truth is that it’s very difficult to defend him well.”

Bellingham has been invited to Gareth Southgate’s England squad ahead their Euro 2024 qualifier at home against Italy on October 17.
