Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti was full of praise for summer signing Jude Bellingham, as he made his debut against Athletic Bilbao.

Bellingham had a fine game, and scored Madrid’s second goal in the 2-0 victory.

Ancelotti was indeed pleased with his performance.

He said: “He’s outstanding. He has plenty of personality and has adapted very quickly to the team’s system.

“It seems like he’s been with us for a long time and he’s a very talented player.”

The Real Madrid boss also hailed Rodrygo who was very brilliant all game.

Ancelotti said of Rodrygo: “He possesses different characteristics to Joselu. He combined very well with Valverde and Carvajal on the right wing.

“He’s adapting to this system very well, as is Vini Jr. They’re very young and they’re progressing nicely, but they need to continue with this progression. Hopefully Rodrygo can get more goals than he managed last season.”
