Jude Bellingham is Real Madrid‘s man of the moment while making headlines for his late goals and “clutch” moments both inLa Ligaand the Champions League. The 20-year-old Englishman has scored 6 goals for the Los Blancos in 6 appearances in all competitions. However, the player has also come under criticism and become the target of trolls.
The reason for the same points to claims that Bellingham only scores “tap-ins” and is a “tap-in merchant”. However, former footballer and English Football Pundit Ian Wright came to the defense of his countryman. He said that the people who make such claims “do not understand” football and that to create space and get ahead of defenders in the box was surely a difficult task.
He defended Bellingham, saying, “To go 20 yards in elite football & find space in the box, top defenders trying to stop you is not an easy task.” He also added, “Yet he’s putting pressure, scoring with unbelievable movement on a regular basis.” Bellingham recently scored a 90+4′ winner against Union Berlin in the UCL, with his goal coming off of a deflected shot from Fede Valverde, before falling into Bellingham’s way, who was open in front of goal.
Real Madrid receive Jude Bellingham injury scare ahead of Derby
Real Madrid are preparing to take on local rivals Atletico Madrid. Ahead of Sunday’s clash, the Los Blancos have received an untimely injury scare for star player Jude Bellingham. Ahead of the much-awaited clash, reports came out suggesting that the 20-year-old Starboy has withdrawn from training following discomfort in the stomach.
The news has shocked many since Bellingham has been in stellar form since his arrival at the Bernabeu. The youngster has scored six goals in as many games, with all his last 3 goals being late winners. It was reported that Bellingham left training early on Friday with a stomach complaint, but it is yet to be known whether it is muscular discomfort or illness.
However, the medical team at Real Madrid is positive that the youngster will be back in action, right in time for the Madrid Derby. Diego Simeone‘s side proves to be a daunting task and already without the services of Dani Carvajal alongside Vinicius Jr. and Arda Güler, the loss of Jude Bellingham will come as a devastating blow to Ancelotti’s side.
