Days after snubbing Karim Benzema from honors, Jude Bellingham earns “Best Player In the World” title from football pundit

Jude Bellingham’s impact at Real Madrid has been remarkable, particularly in the Champions League this season. He has consistently delivered world-class performances and scored crucial goals for the team. His decisive goal against Union Berlin and another spectacular strike against Napoli highlight his exceptional talent and ability to make a difference on the pitch, and he has not really played in his primary position yet.

Bellingham’s impressive performances are even more remarkable, considering he is just 20 years old. His move to Borussia Dortmund over the summer has been one of the standout signings, and his displays on the pitch have garnered significant attention and admiration. A football expert, Owen Hargreaves, is particularly amazed by Jude Bellingham’s remarkable performances.

Owen Hargreaves declares Jude Bellingham the best in the world

Jude Bellingham has certainly made a sensational start to his time at Real Madrid, netting an impressive eight goals in his first nine games for the club. This includes a crucial goal in Real Madrid’s 3-2 victory over Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

TNT Sports expert Owen Hargreaves has gone as far as to declare the 20-year-old England midfielder as the “best in the world”, considering his recent form. Hargreaves also noted that Bellingham has effectively filled the goal-scoring void left by Karim Benzema in the team, highlighting the significant impact and form of the young talent. Such performances are bound to draw attention and generate excitement among football fans and pundits alike.

Owen Hargreaves reiterated that Jude Bellingham’s performance over a few weeks has been extraordinary and remarkable.

He continued: “I know it’s only early doors, but we just heard the numbers…nine games, eight goals, three assists. He’s not even playing his position. He’s not a No. 10, and he’s scoring goals like a No. 9, replacing [Karim] Benzema.

“The thing about Jude is, as good as he is, his ability to take a step up. Birmingham, [Borussia] Dortmund and now Real Madrid. He takes it in his stride, and he gets better. It’s remarkable what he’s doing.”

Carlo Ancelotti had previously expressed his extreme excitement about the player, saying that his performance has been outstanding. He expressed that he’s ‘surprised’ Jude puts up such a sterling performance as a 20-year-old game after game

Benzema overlooked in Bellingham’s Real Madrid Legends selection

During the unveiling his EA FC24 card, Jude Bellingham was asked to name his top five Real Madrid legends. The midfielder’s response included the following players: Zinedine Zidane, Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, Ronaldo (presumably referring to the Brazilian Ronaldo), and Luís Figo.

These players have all left a lasting legacy at Real Madrid and are widely regarded as legends of the club.

It is rather surprising that Jude Bellingham left Karim Benzema off the list, considering that he is the second-highest goal scorer in Real Madrid history. He also left out legends like Sergio Ramos and the great Alfredo Di Stefano. In his defense, though, he had only five entries.
