In his first season he scored 22 goals and provided 10 assists in 39 games in all competitions but his next bit of talent was to show off his Spanish skills.

Addressing the crowd in their native tongue, he said: “Thank you so much for your support this season.

A third commented: “The way he’s settled at Madrid, it’s just unbelievable.

“Fair fucks to Jude. I know it shouldn’t be a shock that he can speak Spanish now, but it’s crazy how he’s settled in so fast to a notoriously hard crowd. Proper guy,” added a fourth.
