Jude Bellingham, an English player who has had a great start at Real Madrid, has won the 2023 Golden Boy award.
Young player of the year award went to the 20-year-old, who beat out RB Leipzig’s Xavi Simons and Bayern Munich’s Jamal Musiala.
Topping the scoring charts in LaLiga with 10 goals in 11 games, Bellingham has also scored three goals in as many Champions League games since coming to Madrid from Borussia Dortmund in June for a reported 103 million euros ($112 million).
“Thank you to everyone who has helped me get where I am now, in Birmingham, Dortmund, and Madrid.” “Without them, it wouldn’t be possible,” Bellingham said on Friday.
“Finally and most importantly, my family, who always inspire, support, and love me to keep going.”
“Now that I have this important award, I want to keep going.” I want to keep pushing myself to the edge, and I hope that many more prizes are on the way.
The Golden Girl award went to 18-year-old Colombian forward Linda Caicedo of Real Madrid.
Some of the players who have won the Golden Boy award in the past are Wayne Rooney, Lionel Messi, Raheem Sterling, Kylian Mbappe, Erling Haaland, and the Barcelona team Pedri and Gavi.
