On a memorable Monday night in Turin, Jude Bellingham, the talented English midfielder, stood in the spotlight as he received the prestigious Golden Boy award.

The accolade, recognizing the best young player in European football, underscored Bellingham’s meteoric rise and contributions to Real Madrid this season.

The million-dollar question

Amid the celebratory atmosphere, Bellingham was asked a number of questions. He found himself confronted with the question that often accompanies such accolades: Is he the best player in the world? His response was marked by a humility that has become synonymous with his character since his move to Spain. It did not fail to resonate.

Jude’s humble reply

“Me as the best in the world? I am very pleased that it is said, but I don’t know if I agree,” replied the 20-year-old, deftly sidestepping the spotlight. This genuine modesty has endeared Bellingham to fans and pundits alike. Furthermore, it makes him not just a formidable player on the field but also a role model for aspiring footballers.

Jude Bellingham received two awards on Monday night. The Golden Boy award and the Golden Boy Web 2023 which was given to him because he had the highest number of votes from Tuttosport’s website users.

Bellingham’s journey to this moment has been defined by more than just individual accolades. His commitment to discipline and hard work has been evident since he made the switch to Real Madrid. The midfielder’s professionalism and dedication have not only contributed to his personal success. It has also become a cornerstone of the team’s impressive performance this season.

While many hail Bellingham as the best in the world, the young star remains grounded, acknowledging the praise but maintaining a level of uncertainty about such lofty titles. This attitude is refreshing in an era where self-promotion often takes center stage.

Stellar start to life

The statistics, however, tell a compelling story. With 15 goals to his name this season, Bellingham’s impact on Real Madrid’s success cannot be overstated. His prowess on the field has earned him accolades and admiration from all corners of the footballing world.

The English midfielder’s seamless integration into the fabric of Real Madrid has been nothing short of remarkable. His ability to find the back of the net, coupled with his versatility and football intelligence, has made him a key asset for the team. Whether orchestrating plays from the midfield or showcasing his goal-scoring prowess, Bellingham has become a force to be reckoned with.

As the applause for Bellingham’s Golden Boy award reverberates, it’s clear that his journey is far from over. The humility and discipline that have defined his ascent will undoubtedly continue to guide him as he strives for even greater heights on the footballing stage.

In a world where talent is abundant, it is the combination of skill, character, and a touch of humility that sets players like Jude Bellingham apart.

The five ‘deserters’

Fifty journalists voted in the final round of the Golden Boy race. Out of the total number, only five did not vote for the Englishman as their first choice. The five that did not vote for Jude Bellingham, the talented English midfielder as number 1 include Mundo Deportivo, Kicker, TZ, De Telegraaf and Sportski Žurnal.

The forty-five votes means Bellingha won the award with 485 points out of a total 500, which is a record.

The only previous winner to match his dominance was PSG’s Kylian Mbappé who got 291 out of 300 points in 2017. At that time, there were just 30 voters.
