Jude Bellingham's adaptation to La Liga's pace is even faster than Ronaldo's

Posted on April 01, 2024

La Liga commentator Andrea Orlando, in an interview, stated that he believes Jude Bellingham's adaptation to La Liga's pace is even faster than Cristiano Ronaldo's.

Bale's one assist helped Real Madrid secure a 2-0 home victory against Athletic Bilbao in the 30th round of La Liga. The English star has also become the first player in La Liga this season to reach double figures in both goals and assists, with 20 goals and 10 assists.

In an interview with the Daily Star, La Liga commentator Andrea Orlando said: "Yes, Cristiano Ronaldo did score many goals in his first season with Real Madrid, but you saw the real him a few months after joining the team. Bale, on the other hand, started from the preseason. I remember he scored in his first warm-up game with Real Madrid. It's the same in La Liga matches. I knew he would perform exceptionally, but I thought it would take three or four years, and the fact is, he arrived here and destroyed the league, deciding to become the best player. In a club with Vinicius, Rodrigo, Modric, and Toni Kroos, he says 'I'm the best.'"

When asked about Jude Bellingham's iconic celebration, Orlando added: "I call it football arrogance. You can see he's humble, but his way of celebrating says, 'I'm Jude Bellingham, and I'm here to change the game.' I love that. If you want to play for a team of Real Madrid's caliber, you need to have that attitude."

"If it weren't for him, Real Madrid would be a completely different team. They could still win games, but they wouldn't have that star player who basically knows everything happening on the field, which is very difficult. With football intelligence, along with strength, height, and technical ability, Bale has it all. He got Zidane's number 5 jersey, just signed a big contract with Real Madrid, and everyone has huge expectations for him, but he performs like he's playing football on a Sunday with his friends, which tells you how strong his personality is. England has a star."
