Jude Bellingham has a secret weakness that only his best friend knows about

Jude Bellingham is quite possibly the best player in world football right now, with no chinks in his armour whatsoever.

The 20-year-old sensation continued his sensational start to life at Real Madrid with a stunning, match-winning brace in his first competitive El Clasico fixture.

Bellingham cancelled out Ilkay Gundogan's opener for Barcelona in the 68th minute with a thunderous 25-yard strike and then went one better.

In the 92nd minute, the England international popped up with the winner - silencing the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys and busting out his trademark celebration.

It was his 13th goal in 13 games for Real, a tally which already betters Zinedine Zidane's best ever goalscoring tally for Los Blancos.

Bellingham has developed a complete footballer with so many strings to his bow and even excels whenever he speaks to the media.

However, Bellingham's little known flaw has been shared by his best mate Odin Bailey, who went to the same Priory School as him and was on the books of Birmingham for 15 years before moving to Salford City and current side Stockport County.

In an interview with The Sun, Bailey revealed that unlike a lot of top-level footballers Bellingham is not good at golf.

Asked what Bellingham is bad at, he replied: “Golf!

“He’s terrible at golf. I’m trying to convince him to play but he’s not having any of it.

"He can’t be good at everything, can he?”

Bellingham's heroics moved Real four points clear of rivals Barca at the top of La Liga in what could be a crucial result when the end of the season rolls around.

And manager Carlo Ancelotti has already set him a goals target for his first full season at Real.

Speaking afterwards, he said: "He can easily reach 20-25 goals. 'We don't have in mind that he is a scorer or a striker. He is scoring, but we wait for the rest of us to score goals.

"Bellingham plays like a veteran. He's got a fantastic attitude."
