Thierry Henry praises Jude Bellingham and his success in Spain

Real Madrid had one of the best deals in the form of Jude Bellingham during the last summer transfer window. They signed the young attacking midfielder from Borussia Dortmund and tagged him as the future. Moreover, he was given the number 5 that Zinedine Zidane had.

Well, the attacking midfielder proved his worth and is currently the best player in the world. Bellingham has a better goal/assists average than various strikers this season, and his contributions have been top-notch.

Moving from Germany to Spain hasn’t been easy for several players due to the higher competition. But still, Bellingham passed with flying colors and is one of the favorites for the Ballon d’Or. He has impressed everyone with his performances, and Thierry Henry is one of them.

Thierry Henry praised Jude Bellingham by saying:

“Footballers have it easy in England. The pressure that you have to endure in Spain is what makes it even more special. The pressure, the expectation, and you take number 5 of Zinedine Zidane? And you celebrate like this? Oh, well done, mate.”

The Magic of Jude Bellingham?

This is Bellingham’s first season in Spain, but it seems he has been playing for ages, looking at his performances. He has scored 20 goals and provided eight assists as a midfielder. He has a better goal-assist ratio than Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo, and other players on their side.

Bellingham has scored goals from inside the box and a few magical ones from outside. Moreover, he is only 20 and has a long career ahead of him.

Bellingham has impressed everyone with his performances. Even Jose Mourinho believes Bellingham has something special.

A few weeks ago, Jose Mourinho said:

“When this kid (Jude Bellingham) in Madrid scores a goal and opens his arms to the Bernabeu, it’s his dimension. It shows character; he is not doing it with arrogance. It is just, ‘Here I am; I did it again.’”

Bellingham is also the top contender for the 2024 Ballon d’Or. He has been good individually and has also won a trophy in the form of a Supercopa.
