Following a brutal tackle from Manchester United’s Lisandro Martinez, Jude Bellingham found himself entangled in a heated altercation with the player.
Bellingham made an impressive start for Real Madrid against AC Milan and then scored his first goal for the Spanish powerhouse against Manchester United a few days later, demonstrating what appears to be an effortless adjustment to life at Real Madrid.
Jude Bellingham confronted Lisandro Martinez after the Manchester United defender hacked him down.
The 20-year-old, who became Madrid’s second most-expensive signing ever at £88 million following his transfer from Dortmund, wasted no time in opening his goal-scoring account and scored just five minutes into his second game for the club.
However, it was not just his goal that made headlines but also a controversial incident involving Martinez.
Martinez vs Bellingham clash
During the match, Bellingham received a pass in midfield with his back to the goal.
As he tried to manoeuvre past Martinez and launch an attack, the uncompromising Argentine defender made a harsh and brutal challenge, bringing Bellingham down.
Martinez, known for his passionate playing style, seemed unapologetic about the tackle, which left the Englishman displeased.
This led to a heated confrontation between the two players, resulting in a brief scuffle before the referee intervened to separate them.
