Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says Jude Bellingham’s surprising form has made an impact on the Whites similar to former playmaker Ricardo Kaka. The Brazilian national team moved to play with AC Milan in 2003. According to a report from ‘Diario AS’ last Friday UFABET
Bellingham moved from Borussia Dortmund to play for Real Madrid last summer. And the 20-year-old midfielder has made a great start to his career with the Whites. Scoring 15 goals and providing four assists in 16 games in all competitions.
Asked if he had asked Bellingham to be the Whites’ main scorer. Ancelotti replied: ‘No, I don’t think we ever asked Bellingham to score. He did. That’s because he has a great ability to reach into the opponent’s space at the right time. The respect we have for him is the work he does. It’s not about scoring goals’
Ancelotti also spoke about Bellingham’s role in the dressing room. ‘He’s got a lot of respect for what he does on the field. which goes much further than the target. He is a humble and hard-working boy. Getting into the Madrid dressing room is easy’
The Italian was then asked to choose between Alfredo Di Stefano, Zinedine Zidane and Johan Cruyff to compare with whom Bellingham was most similar to.
‘I had never seen Di Stefano play in the previous press conference. I compared him to Zidane and I was surprised by him. And I would say the closest thing is like the first time I saw Kaka. I’m not saying he’s like Kaka, but he’s similar to Kaka.’
