Midfielder Jude Bellingham got himself the coveted individual award in his career at the Ballon d’Or awards ceremony with the Kopa Cup. This is a category honoring the best male player at the age of 21.
With impressive performances in both Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid. In his final season at Dortmund, he scored 14 goals in 42 matches and showed even better performance in his new shirt (13 goals in 13 matches). Therefore, it is not surprising that the Three Lions star received this honor.
During the speech, besides expressing his joy at receiving the prestigious award, Bellingham also mentioned Lionel Messi – who won his 8th Golden Ball in his career.
“I just want to thank everyone who has helped me get to this point. From Birmingham to Dortmund and now Real Madrid and the national team. Thank you for the support, it means a lot.
This is World Cup year and Lionel Messi had a great World Cup, he deserves to win the Golden Ball”.
