Real Betis defender Aitor Ruibal stirred up controversy in his comments where he throws dig and Real Madrid star player. After Saturday’s game against Real Madrid, Aitor cast doubt on the status of Jude Bellingham as the world’s best player. The Spaniard’s remarks have since sparked a reaction from some disgruntled Real Madrid fans.

Aitor denies Bellingham as the best

During a post-game interview, Aitor was questioned about whether Real Madrid’s Jude Bellingham could be considered the best player in the world at present. In response, the right-back tactfully sidestepped the question, stating, “As long asMessiis active, I can’t say.” This diplomatic response seemed to irk some fans supporting the Madrid side.

It must not be forgotten that Jude Bellingham opened the score on Saturday with a sublime finish through the goalkeeper’s legs.

Aitor Ruibal had a standout performance during the game, securing Real Betis’ crucial goal that ultimately led to a significant point for the Seville-based club. Reflecting on Bellingham’s abilities, Aitor acknowledged, “It is true that he is one of the best right now, and at his age, he is surely among the best here, if not already.”

Jude’s gold not enough

Despite Jude Bellingham recently receiving the prestigious Golden Boy award and clinching the Kopa trophy, it appears that Aitor Ruibal remains unconvinced and throws dig at the young star’s claim to being the best player in the world. This deviation from the popular sentiment surrounding Bellingham’s recent accolades adds an intriguing layer to the ongoing debates about football’s top talents.

Real Madrid’s draw on Saturday has already been labeled an ‘unhappy result‘ by veteran right back Lucas Vázquez. The frustration among the team members is palpable, emphasizing the high standards set by one of the most successful football clubs globally.

As the football world debates the hierarchy of the sport’s elite players, Aitor Ruibal’s comments have added a nuanced perspective. The ongoing rivalry and discussions surrounding the best player in the world promise to keep football enthusiasts engaged and debating for the foreseeable future.
