The 20-year-old, recently returning from injury, has been a standout contributor for Madrid, shining brightly amid the team's injury woes.

Operating as the No.10 alongside Rodrygo, Joselu and Vinicius Jr, Bellingham's prolific form has seen him amass an impressive tally of 15 goals in 16 matches across all competitions, as recorded by Transfermarkt.

His latest contribution, a superb header against Napoli, added to Madrid's scoreline following Rodrygo Goes's equalizer before Nico Paz and Joselu secured the thrilling comeback win.

Earning accolades such as the Golden Ball Award, the 20-year-old set new milestones, notably becoming the first Madrid player to score in his first four Champions League appearances and the first English player to net 10 Champions League goals before turning 21.

Despite these remarkable achievements, revered coach Carlo Ancelotti, while praising the Englishman's performance, humorously pointed out an area where the young talent could further enhance his game.

“Jude Bellingham is a young, serious professional who gets along very well with everyone. But he’s not perfect, he has to improve his Spanish,” the 64-year-old jokingly told reporters as quoted by Madrid Zone.
