Gerard Pique explains why Jude Bellingham is more important to England than Harry Kane

Jude Bellingham can bring more to the England team than Harry Kane, according to Gerard Pique.

Three Lions duo Bellingham and Kane are expected to be key stars for Gareth Southgate’s side at Euro 2024 in Germany.

Both have enjoyed excellent individual seasons with Real Madrid and Bayern Munich respectively, scoring a combined 57 goals.

International duty will come calling in June as England eye their first trophy since their World Cup triumph in 1966.

Pique is aware that Kane is one of the world’s best, but he has made the argument that Bellingham could be the more crucial player.

When asked on talkSPORT Drive if he believes the Real Madrid midfielder is England’s most important star, the World Cup and European Championship winner with Spain said: “I think so.”

And when questioned if he is more so than Kane, the former Barcelona defender added: “Yes because Jude gives you more than just goals, a lot of stamina, a lot of last passes, goals also.

“Harry, it’s true that you need a striker like him to win titles, but Jude can give you, in the overall, he can bring you more things.”

Following an impressive stint at Borussia Dortmund, Bellingham sealed a move to Madrid last summer in a deal that could be worth £115million in total.

He has taken such a monumental move in his stride, scoring 20 goals and assisting nine others in 31 appearances across all competitions.

Over in Germany, Kane has also been playing in his first season at a new club having previously spent nearly two decades at Tottenham.

He has 37 goals and 12 assists to his name in 35 matches, a tally that will only increase in the final weeks of the campaign.
