FANS have hailed Jude Bellingham as the ‘future captain’ of Real Madrid and England after his incredible gesture for Kepa Arrizabalaga.
The midfielder made a big-money move from Borussia Dortmund to the LaLiga giants in the summer and is already emerging as a key player for the club.
Bellingham, 20, has started his Real Madrid career in style after scoring four goals and providing one assist in his first three games.
The former Birmingham City youth player has been praised for his performances on the pitch but has also demonstrated his leadership qualities.
After scoring the winning goal in Madrid’s 1-0 win over Celta Vigo, Bellingham and Arrizabalaga, 28, joined the traveling fans.
And Bellingham pointed to the goalkeeper on loan, pushing him towards the fans after his debut for the club.

And fans were delighted by the England international’s gesture to the goalkeeper as they took to social media to praise him.
One tweeted: “Born leader.”
