Jude Bellingham, a midfielder for Real Madrid, has spoken out about his altercation with Lisandro Martinez, a defender for Manchester United, during the two teams’ preseason friendly match.
Bellingham and Martinez got into a heated argument during the encounter.
Early on Thursday (Nigerian time), the friendly game took place at Texas’ NRG Stadium.
In his post-game interview, Bellingham acknowledged that “the small argument with [Lisandro] Martinez is one of those things.” He is a fantastic player.
“When I entered at halftime, I was f’ing everything. But I truly appreciated it when he approached me to wish me luck after he left. I am aware that actions taken on the field remain there.
He continued, “He is a fantastic player and a great competitor. He desires victory just like I do. It sometimes overflows. That’s how the game works. I really do respect others.
Bellingham recently moved from Dortmund to Madrid in the offseason.
The England international is anticipated to be a crucial member of Carlo Ancelotti’s squad in the upcoming campaign.
