Real Madrid confirmed the signing of Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund on a six-year contract last Wednesday, June 14, 2023. The Spanish La Liga giants secured Bellingham's signature after winning the competition against Manchester City and Liverpool.

The following day, the 19-year-old player was officially presented by Real Madrid in front of the media. During his official introduction, it was revealed that Bellingham would wear the number five shirt, famously worn by his idol, Zinedine Zidane.

"To begin with, I want to thank Jesus Vallejo for allowing me to wear the number five," Bellingham said when asked about Zidane.

Amidst all eyes on him, Bellingham took the time to praise one of the journalists present.

"Sid Lowe may be the only journalist who can ask a question at Bellingham's press conference, a €100 million player, and ask him to respond by saying 'I'm a big fan of yours,'" wrote Euan McTear in a tweet.

Jude Bellingham Admires Zinedine Zidane

"I have had some contact with him just to see if it's okay, and he's a brilliant person in letting me do it, just being good about it, so I'm very grateful."

"I've said how much I admire Zinedine Zidane, the legacy he has at the club, and I'm not trying to be like him, I'm trying to be Jude, but it's obviously a tribute to how great he was."

When asked why he chose to join Real Madrid, he replied, "I think the respect Real Madrid has in England and the pedigree they have in Europe is huge. The history of Madrid is appealing to me, and I want to add to their history."
