Won 1 La Liga title, 1 Champions League, 1 UEFA Super Cup, 1 Intercontinental and 2 Spanish Super Cups, but Senna sees it as too fast. It’s too much to compare the English midfielder to an all-time great like Zidane.

‘Such comparisons are not helpful. Bellingham is a youngster just starting out in La Liga,’ Senna said. ‘It is true that he started with a great record. And I don’t think anyone expected that. Even himself’

‘He is a talented player who can define his era. But comparing him to Zidane at the moment is too early.’

‘Zidane is a legend with a great legacy. You should wait at least three seasons with Real Madrid to see if Bellingham can have something similar.’
