Carlo Ancelotti has hailed the talent of Jude Bellingham, after his first appearance in a Real Madrid shirt.

The 20-year-old summer signing joined the Los Blancos for a fee of €103m, and has showed that he’s indeed a top class player.

Speakingafter the game, Ancelotti admitted that Bellingham’s quality for his age is quite rare.

“Bellingham’s position has been good and he has played a good game. The team must get used to his quality. We have to enjoy his arrival during the season,” Carlo Ancelotti said in a press conference after the game.

“It’s rare to find players with that kind of quality. And it’s strange to find him at 20 years old.

“He has room to improve, but we are lucky to have him with us. We have fantastic young players.

“This team gives me a lot of confidence because I see fantastic young players in training.”
