English midfielder Jude Bellingham still can not believe how well his start as a Real Madrid player has gone
"I don't think this is just a purple patch that he is going through. He's a player who can score at any given moment. There are scorers who we know are either going to score one way or another way.
“There are centre-forwards who wait for their chance. But Bellingham can score in so many different ways. He has various ways to score a goal in every game. He is one of the most complete players in the world at the moment."
When asked whether he would like to compete for the Ballon d'Or, Saviola responded, "Well the next Ballon d'Or will be [Lionel] Messi.
“But the one after that… Bellingham brings together so many different qualities. He can do so many different things.
“He scores, he can play wide, he turns defence into attack incredibly well, he strikes the ball well and he can head it too. To win the Ballon d'Or you have to be very complete and I think he is."
On Saturday, Bellingham will play again when Los Blancos travel to Catalonia to play Barcelona in the world's largest club match.
