JUDE BELLINGHAM was far from happy after finding out his pace rating for EAFC 24.
The England midfielder made his presence felt on the world stage with a series of impressive performances for Borussia Dortmund last season and at the 2022 World Cup.
His form earned him a mega-money move to European giants Real Madrid, where he has been successful in his first four appearances for the Spaniards, already scoring five goals.
Like hundreds of players around the world, Bellingham recently found out his rating for the upcoming EAFC 24 video game – although he discovered his stats alongside his Real team-mates Brahim Diaz, Lucas Vazquez and Rodrygo.
“I must be about 84,” said the former Birmingham City star when asked to predict his racing speed.
But he was way off the mark and his jaw almost hit the floor when he was told he only got a 76.
Diaz was quick to poke fun at his Los Blancos teammates’ scoring – and his running style.
The Spaniard said, “You run like that all the time, brother.”
A stunned and stunned Bellingham couldn’t believe the review and added: “Are you kidding?”
“I was more last year, so I went under?”

Bellingham may not be happy with his stats for the upcoming video game, but he can’t complain about his numbers for Real Madrid.
The 20-year-old is Carlo Ancelotti’s team’s top scorer this season with five goals in four games and one assist.
He scored his sixth goal of the season in England’s 3-1 win against their old rivalsat Hampden Park on Tuesday evening.
But the midfielder refuses to get too ahead of himself, telling beIN Sports: “I’m always learning.”
“I am so lucky to have played with so many great players at my last club and even more so at my new club, which is a big boost for me and my own confidence to play with such great players.”
“I’m really constantly learning. I’m trying to add more attributes to my game and influence the ones I already have.”
“If I can continue to be effective in goal and do the things that I already do well in my game overall, I think I can do well and hopefully have a good season.”
“That’s why it’s important that I continue like this.”
Bellingham and his Real Madrid teammates will be back in action on Sunday evening as they welcome Real Sociedad to the Bernabeu.
