Cundy calls him “Jude Ballon d’Or” and predicts that this 20-year-old player surpasses the level of English legend Paul Gascoigne.
Bellingham is in high form since joining Real Madrid from Borussia Dortmund in the summer transfer window. He has scored 5 goals in 4 matches for Real Madrid this season and was also on the scoring list when England defeated Scotland 3-1 recently.
Speaking on talkSPORT, Cundy also compared Bellingham to Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney: “Jude Ballon d’Or. That’s what he should be known for. Because that boy will win the Ballon d’Or at some point.”
“He is so good. We are watching a special player. This kid will surpass what Gazza [Paul Gascoigne] did it. I promise you. He only turned 20 in June. I’ve watched Rooney develop and he’s the most impressive young player I’ve ever seen. When we watched Bellingham in an England shirt, he was amazing.”
Bellingham was recently included in the list of 30 candidates for this year’s Ballon d’Or.
