London, Oct 5 (EFE).- Gareth Southgate, England coach, assured that Jude Bellingham’s start with Real Madrid has been “wonderful” and that, faced with the challenge of playing with the ‘Whites’, he is a footballer who “grows in difficult environments.”
Bellingham was included this Thursday in England’s squad for the matches against Australia and Italy, after a spectacular start at Real Madrid culminated this week with a great goal and assist against Naples in the Champions League.
“He has had a wonderful start at a great football club. It is a great challenge, but he has taken it like everything that is put in front of him,” Southgate said at a press conference.
“Everyone can see the personality with which he plays. He is a footballer who grows in difficult environments and it is great to see him playing so well,” added the England coach.
