Bellingham, the touching message


By: Manu Tournoux

Real Madrid superstar Jude Bellingham has thanked Los Blancos fans for their support as the midfielder serves his two-match ban.

The England midfielder was suspended after using abusive language towards referee Jesus Gil Manzano in highly controversial circumstances against Valencia. The suspension meant he had to watch Real Madrid’s 4-0 rout of Celta Vigo from the stands of the Santiago Bernabéu. During the match, fans unfurled and waved a banner in support of the 20-year-old. It read “ Hey Jude! Madridismo is with you ». Bellingham responded on social media with the following message : “I can’t help but smile. Thanks for the love, madridistas.”

Since his sensational transfer from Borussia Dortmund to the Spanish capital, the English midfielder has set the championship alight, currently being the top scorer with 16 goals in 22 matches. His performance has slowed considerably over the last month, but he remains a key player in Carlo Ancelotti’s system.

Real in great shape

Real Madrid are currently top of the league and appear to be the most likely team to win the trophy this season. They have accumulated 69 points from 28 matches and are seven points clear of second-placed Girona and eight ahead of third-placed Barcelona. They have only lost one match in the league so far, against rivals Atlético Madrid.

The former Birmingham City midfielder will miss another league match when Real Madrid face Osasuna on March 16. He will be available for the match against Athletic Club on March 31.
