Bale advises Bellingham on mistakes

Meanwhile, former Real Madrid forward, Gareth Bale has told Bellingham to act as a 'puppet' for the fans - and avoid what he did wrong at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Birmingham Live reports.

The former Los Blancos record signee warned the Englishman to 'play the game' and do what the media wants to avoid getting stick from fans, just like he suffered during his later years in Spain.

Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez parted with £88 million as a minimum fee for Bellingham, which has paid off handsomely, as he already grabbed 13 goals in 15 games from central midfield.

Gerard Pique praises Jude Bellingham

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Barcelona legend, Gerard Pique haling Bellingham's exceptional talent following a series of impressive performances for the Spanish side.
