Jude Bellingham at risk of LaLiga fine for breaking 1 unknown rule in every match

Jude Bellingham has been simply outstanding for Real Madrid since joining the club this summer for £113 million. But, the former Borussia Dortmund man breaks an unknown LaLiga rule every time he plays, just like Gareth Bale did when he played for Madrid. 

Ever since arriving, Bellingham has been playing with holes cut out in his socks. And according to a rather obscure LaLiga rule, players are not allowed to have any such holes in their socks. But they have overlooked the rule, neglecting the scope of a fine for the player and the club too. Real Madrid’s Brahim Diaz has also taken to a similar practice, but it hasn’t warranted punishment from the authorities yet.

The two holes cut out in the player’s socks are not because of a fashion choice. There is a medical reason involved, since the holes allow the socks to be less tight and reduce the risk of cramps by maintaining the blood flow into the calf muscles.

Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka and Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher are the most prominent names in the Premier League to have taken to a similar practice. And unlike Spain, the English league has no rules against holes in players’ socks.

Gareth Bale escaped punishment from LaLiga for his long tenure in Spain, and it seems obvious that Jude Bellingham will also avoid any unnecessary heat because of it.
