LaLiga: Diego Simeone rates Jude Bellingham’s display as Atletico beat Real Madrid
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has commented on why Real Madrid midfielder Jude Bellingham failed to make an impact during both teams’ La Liga derby on Sunday.
Simeone’s men defeated Real Madrid 3-1 at the Metropolitano Stadium as Bellingham, who has been impressive for Los Blancos so far this season, failed to help Carlo Ancelotti’s side secure a point.
A brace from Alvaro Morata and a goal from Antoine Griezmann ensured Atletico defeated Real Madrid.
Toni Kroos did score a goal against the host during the encounter.
Speaking at a post-match press conference, Simeone gave his opinion on Bellingham’s performance.
