Jude Bellingham performs trademark celebration after netting volley on Real Madrid debut

Jude Bellingham got his Real Madrid career off to the perfect start after netting on his debut in a 2-0 win.

Los Blancos were facing Athletic Club in their first La Liga clash of the season, giving the England starlet his first chance to impress the supporters.

While Rodygo got things off to the ideal start for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, it was the 20-year-old who got his moment in the 36th minute as he latched onto David Alaba’s corner and volleyed a bouncing effort over the goalkeeper and into the top corner of the net from inside the penalty area.

Clearly delighted, Bellingham wheeled away to celebrate with the traveling Real Madrid fans and held out his arms in trademark fashion.

It was a celebration that was a familiar sight at former club Borussia Dortmund as he scored 24 goals in 132 appearances for the club.

Off the mark for the Spanish giants already, Bellingham will be hoping that it can be the first of many for his new employers.

The central midfielder moved to the Santiago Bernabeu earlier this summer in a blockbuster deal that could be worth up to £115million with add-ons.

Bellingham wears the number five jersey for Real Madrid, a shirt that was made famous by club legend and Bellingham’s role model, Zinedine Zidane.

If the Birmingham-born star can achieve even a fraction of what Zidane did in the Spanish capital, he’ll be doing alright.
