Jude Bellingham has received widespread praise from football pundits across the globe, just a month or so after joining Real Madrid.

The praises have not been restricted to just pundits either, with the Englishman recently being applauded by his international teammate Kieran Trippier.

In a recent media interaction (h/t Madrid Zone), Trippier has backed Bellingham to become one of the best players in the world.

“For me, Jude can become one of the best in the world, 100%. At such a young age, it’s scary how good he is. England is really lucky to have a player like Jude,” he said.

“I think Jude is only 19 years of age so it’s frightening really, how good he is,” he added.

Bellingham has indeed witnessed major success at an early stage of his career. At just 19, he has featured in almost 100 Bundesliga matches while winning 24 caps for the Three Lions.

Bellingham also started his Real Madrid career by scoring a goal on his debut. He starred in the club’s 2-0 win over Athletic Club in the season opener.

Trippier went on to reveal that he had helped out the young Englishman settle in Madrid, adding, “Jude and I had a chat when we were away with England, just talking about Madrid and places to live. I helped out as much as I could.”

Trippier is well accustomed to life in Madrid, having spent a short spell at Atletico Madrid before joining Newcastle United.

Now regarded as one of the most experienced English fullbacks, Trippier has become a crucial component in Newcastle United’s success story.

When asked about the toughest opponent he has ever faced, though, the English international has named Real Madrid star Vinicius Junior, along with Raheem Sterling.

“Toughest player I’ve faced? Vinícius Júnior. Him and Raheem,” he said.

Real Madrid usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
