Scare at Real Madrid
Madridista hearts stopped when Bellingham, just 20 years old, seemed to be in immense pain after going down awkwardly in the early minutes of the LaLiga home match against Rayo Vallecano. The youngster had won the ball in midfield, but his momentum caused him to fall to the ground, arms outstretched, with a grimace on his face that suggested a serious shoulder injury.
Real Madrid’s coach, Carlo Ancelotti, fearing the worst, sent Rodrygo to warm up as the midfielder received medical attention on the pitch. A stretcher was even called as it seemed certain Bellingham would have to be taken off the field.
However, in an unexpected turn of events, as soon as the English international saw the stretcher being prepared, he stood up and walked to the sideline. There, after a brief moment with the physiotherapist, he ran back onto the field as if nothing had happened. True to his style, Bellingham immediately re-entered the action and, within minutes, seemed to be fully recovered, just when it looked like a lengthy injury layoff might be looming.
The Bernabéu Stadium breathed a collective sigh of relief. Bellingham’s presence on the pitch is not only a guarantee of commitment and talent but has also become a symbol of hope and determination for the Merengue team. His quick recovery on the field against Rayo Vallecano is a testament to his strength and resilience, qualities that make him more than just a player; they turn him into an emerging icon in the constellation of stars that is Real Madrid.
It is still unknown if Bellingham’s mishap will have consequences, though Ancelotti expressed hope of having him in the next Champions League match. Jude Bellingham is the leading scorer of the white team, and his absence could harm Real Madrid, diminishing their chances of winning as his participation is often decisive in deciding matches. With Bellingham on the team, Ancelotti gains in ball control and threat, so they hope to have him available to continue their undefeated streak in both the league and Champions League.
