Paul Scholes has the back of Real Madrid star Jude Bellingham who is having a golden start at Spain. The 20-year old has made an incredible start under Ancelloti and Scholes feels sky is the limit for the midfielder. Besides this, Scholes believe that Bellingham’s individual qualities stand him out from other greats in the past. He even believes that Jude has ‘no weakness’ and can go for Ballon D’or glory.

Bellingham has made a stunning start to the season bagging 10 goals in 10 games so far in all competitions. Furthermore, he is a regular starter for the England as well.

“I think Jude Bellingham for his age and what he’s accomplished so far in his short career, is better than anything we’ve seen,” he told TNT Sports.

“He started at Birmingham and then decided to go to Borussia Dortmund, which by the looks of things looks like the right move for him, given what happened over the last few years. It was a really brave move for him. He’s such a driven and determined lad with so much talent – nothing seems to faze him.”

He’s gone to one of the biggest clubs in the world now in Real Madrid. He’s just cracking on like he’s playing for Birmingham! He just stands out that much.”

Moreover, Scholes added,

“I find it hard to compare him to anybody, he just stands out on his own at the moment,”

“I’m sure he’s thinking about the Ballon d’Or, with the way he’s going at the moment. You try and look for a chink in his armour. Is he a bad lad? Can he go off the rails? He doesn’t seem like it.

He’s so intelligent and well-spoken, with a great family behind him. There’s no weakness in him.”
