Joselu finds the slurred Spanish of Jude Bellingham endearing

Real Madrid forward Joselu praised Jude Bellingham for his maturity on and off the field while poking fun at the English midfielder’s Spanish language skills.

The 33-year-old striker, who arrived at Real Madrid on loan from Espanyol this summer, discussed the camaraderie he shares with fellow newcomer Jude Bellingham in the dressing room.

Joselu commended the English midfielder and highlighted his maturity, despite being only 20 years old. In a more playful tone, Joselu also playfully teased Bellingham for his occasionally garbled Spanish, finding it amusing.

Speaking to Relevo, Joselu said, “Bellingham is a player who has a lot of growing to do because he was born to play for Real Madrid. He is giving us something different than a midfielder or a playmaker, whatever you want to call it. And He is a player who has landed on his feet both inside the locker room and outside, he is very loved by the fans and by us, because of his way of being. He is a player who is going to put up very good numbers and go down in history at Real Madrid.

“He is a very humble boy, who tries to talk to everyone. I communicate with him a lot because I speak English. I try to socialize with him a lot. He is a very hard-working boy, he is 20 years old but he looks like he is 30. He has incredible maturity and know-how.”

On Bellingham’s Spanish, the strike stated, “Yes, he’s already slurring and trying to say things. The truth is that he is quite funny in that sense.”
