Real Madrid's Jude Bellingham greets fans at the end of the a Spanish La Liga soccer match between Girona and Real Madrid, at the Montilivi stadium in Girona, Spain, Saturday, Sept. 30, 2023.

16 things we loved this weekend: Bellingham, Neville, Rudiger, The Fonz…

Planet Football β€’

There was plenty of football to be occupied with this weekend as the Premier League returned following League Cup action, Jude Bellingham took the p*ss in La Liga and the WSL returned for the 2023-24 season.

Sunday was a somewhat quieter affair, with just one Premier League match as all eyes turned to the climax of the Ryder Cup, but there was still some fine football to be enjoyed across Europe.

Here are 16 of our favourite moments from the weekend.
