‘Don’t kill him’ – Wayne Rooney offers advice to Real Madrid star & ‘future England captain’ Jude Bellingham

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder has been in stellar form and his recent performance in the 3-1 win against Italy in the Euro 2024 qualifier further established him as one of the most influential players in the world on current form.

Incidentally, Rooney happens to be at the helm of Birmingham, where Bellingham spent his formative years. The former striker hailed the Madrid star as a "leader" on the pitch and insisted that Bellingham should not be thrown under the bus when he goes through a lean patch as he has the potential to become the "England skipper" in future.

"We have to really support him because in my eyes he is a future captain of England," he told reporters.
