KATE ABDO grinned as Thierry Henry bluntly rejected Jamie Carragher’s Jude Bellingham theory.
CBS Sports’ popular team was together again for all the Champions League action this week.
Real Madrid was in action in the first game against German club Union Berlin.
The 20-year-old Bellingham once again came to the aid of Carlo Ancelotti’s team, scoring a goal in the 94th minute to secure a 1-0 win.
The CBS team raved about the English star’s latest incredible contribution.
And Carragher even spoke about his chances of playing for Liverpool one day.
When Abdo suggested that Bellingham would have looked good in red, Carra said: “He would have, but there’s still time.”
“He won’t stay there (Real Madrid) his entire career, will he?”
Asked by Abdo to elaborate, Carragher continued: “If I’m being completely honest, I probably find it difficult to leave Madrid.”
“But at some point you think if he is the best player in England and one of the greatest English players of all time, which I think he will be, then I think he will give the Premier League a try.”

“Because he was at Birmingham, he went to Borussia Dortmund, he went to Real Madrid – I’m sure at some point you want to play in the Premier League…
“And where better than Liverpool? The six-time Champions League winner.”
Henry, 46, was taken aback by the suggestion.
As Carragher beamed, Henry said: “He plays for a team that has won 14.”
Then he calmly added, “He plays for a team that has 14 wins, so that’s a tough question.”
Popular presenter Abdo grinned at Henry’s rejection of Carragher’s wishful thinking.
Bellingham’s goal last night was his sixth since his £115million move to Spain in the summer.
When asked about his start to life in Madrid after the game, the Brummy star said: “It’s even more special than I thought.”
“I get goosebumps when I talk about it now. I’m just so grateful to be at this club.”
“I’m talking about the staff and the players, but there are also the fans who are there in their thousands when you arrive at the stadium just to have a look at the bus and then they’re there before the warm-up.”
“You only understand how big this club is when you’re here.”
