Real Madrid attacking midfielder, Jude Bellingham, has named the club’s legend Zinedine Zidane as the player he would have loved to play with.

In a frank interview, when asked which footballer from the past he would choose to play alongside, Bellingham immediately said via Madrid Xtra: “Zinedine Zidane.

“I would just give him the ball all the time and let him do what he wants.”

Bellingham also spoke of how, growing up, everyone around him could not stop talking about Zidane.

He added: ”He was a little bit before my time but playing midfield growing up, that is all anyone talked about. People would say ‘you have to watch Zidane, you have to watch Zidane…’ and since then I have watched loads of footage of him and every time I am blown away.”

Incidentally, Bellingham wears the No. 5 shirt at Real Madrid, the same shirt worn by Zidane during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

The 20-year-old joined Madrid from Borussia Dortmund in the summer transfer window.
