DOWN WITH DECLAN!
We have the lowdown from WEST HAM and England’s DECLAN RICE!
RICE SAYS: “My mum and dad for sure! My earliest memories are of my dad taking me down to the local park to chuck a ball around and have a kick around!”
RICE SAYS: “It’s probably from Mark Noble – he’s always there to give you good advice. I remember after a bad injury he was the one to calm me down and give me a bit of perspective. I was back way sooner than expected too!”
RICE SAYS: “I’d have to say John Terry. His leadership, , the way that he applied himself on the pitch – he was everything I wanted to be as a professional footballer!”
RICE SAYS: “It’s probably got to be Mark Noble! He’s such a huge influence in the dressing room and I’m not sure I would be the same player I’ve been at West Ham without him.
He’s such a good people person and is great with the younger lads as well!”
DREAM PARTY GUESTS!
RICE SAYS: “Drake, LeBron James and Kevin Hart!”
FAVE OTHER SPORT!
RICE SAYS: “I’m a big fan of golf but I love all sport!”
RICE SAYS: “It’s always great to play at home at the London Stadium and feel the support from the Hammers fans!”
