Jude Bellingham, the attacking midfielder of Real Madrid, has added another feather to his cap by winning the prestigious Golden Boy 2023 award. This award, presented by the Italian newspaper Tuttosport, recognizes the best young player under the age of 21 in Europe. Bellingham was the clear favorite to win this award, having already won the Trophée Kopa at the Ballon d’Or ceremony.
Bellingham’s impressive performances for Real Madrid and his former club Borussia Dortmund have earned him this recognition. He has been a key player for both teams, showcasing his exceptional skills and talent on the field. His ability to create scoring opportunities and score crucial goals has made him a fan favorite and a valuable asset to any team.
The 19-year-old Englishman has been making headlines since his debut for Birmingham City in 2019. He quickly caught the attention of top European clubs, and his move to Borussia Dortmund in 2020 was seen as a major coup. His performances in the Bundesliga and the Champions League earned him a move to Real Madrid in 2022, where he has continued to impress.
Winning the Golden Boy award is a significant achievement for Bellingham, as it puts him in the company of some of the best young players in the world. Previous winners of this award include Lionel Messi, Paul Pogba, and Kylian Mbappé, all of whom have gone on to become global superstars.
