‘I was at the final’: Jude Bellingham confirms why he chose Real Madrid over Liverpool

Posted by

Jude Bellingham revealed that Real Madrid’s recent Champions League final victory over Liverpool in Paris played a big part in his decision to join the Spanish giants this summer.

This comes courtesy of a tweet from Fabrizio Romano, relaying comments from the former Borussia Dortmund man in his first press conference for Los Blancos.

The 19-year-old is set to take the No.5 shirt for the club, following in the footsteps of one personal idol in legendary midfielder Zinedine Zidane.

Not a surprising outcome but a difficult one to take all the same

There will be plenty left scratching their heads at the teenager’s words after having witnessed Liverpool mostly dominate proceedings against the Spaniards before Vinicius Jr.’s solo effort decided the tie.

But to the victor the spoils, it seems, with the Englishman opting to join, in his words, the ‘greatest football club in the history of the game’.

We can’t say we’re anything but disappointed to see a player who seemed perfect for the rebuild job required at Anfield and beyond, though we wish him all the best of luck with his career in the Spanish top-flight.

    Good Luck Jude and your easy time of it in Spain.

    1. Pretty sure he said he chose Real because of how well the club treated him, and treated Dortmund.

      Not money, EPL teams offered him “much more” to sign for them.

      It is no secret Klopp has been tapping him up, Trent and Hendo at England games. Klopp speaking directly to his father on the phone.

      Maybe the kid has integrity? I wish him well.

  2. Never in doubt as far as I’m concerned. More money, easier league, but higher expectations and pressure. Don’t do a Bale. Learn the language, and you could become a king in football royalty!!

  3. Jude it all hot air.you said you where at the game whe liverpool played madrid so that changed your mind.but where you at the game when man city demolished and humiliated madrid?guardiola wS also interested in you ,but you still signed fir real.its all hog wash.
