Jude Bellingham has enjoyed a fine start to life in Real Madrid after joining from Borussia Dortmund during the summer transfer window.

The 20-year-old has been the main man for Real Madrid, churning in crucial goals for the Los Blancos.

He has already scored five goals in four appearances, and has been a top player for the club, despite his young age.

Not troubled by his transfer fee or moving to the biggest club in the world, Ancelotti has said it’s down to Bellingham’s personality.

“Good players with personality suffer a bit less than the others,” Ancelotti said in a news conference on Saturday, when asked to explain the speed of his adaptation.

“There’s no other reason. A player with personality above all, more than quality, means that an important shirt like Real Madrid’s doesn’t weigh so much.”

Ancelotti also revealed that Bellingham is a very focused player.

“Bellingham is being assessed right now based on what he’s doing on the pitch, and he’s doing well,” he added.

“Maybe he wasn’t as well-known because he played in Germany, he didn’t have the role he has now, playing for an important club in an important league.

“He’s a player who’s very focused, very serious, very professional. He’s not someone who could lose his head if someone speaks well of him.”
