West Ham Fans Not Impressed With Declan Rice Conduct As He Pushes For Move Away

If you ask most football fans in this part of the world for their opinion on Declan Rice, odds are a good portion of them would say some less than complimentary things about the midfielder.

His history with Ireland is well known, making three appearances for the country at senior level before turning his back on them when an offer from England came along. As a result, his loyalty is often questioned.

Of course, West Ham fans have a very different opinion of him. Rice joined the club's academy as a 14-year old, progressing through their ranks before recently being named as club captain.

He has been linked with a move away from the London side for some time now, although a transfer has yet to materialise. However, some comments he made this morning have lead to some of the club's fans questioning his loyalty.

West Ham fans react to Declan Rice comments

Declan Rice appeared on media duty in Qatar this morning, where a question was asked about his ambitions over the coming seasons.

During his answer, the 23-year old heavily hinted that he saw himself leaving West Ham in the near future.

For the last two or three years I have been saying that. I have been playing consistently well for the club and I feel like I want to keep pushing.

I see my friends here who are playing in the Champions League and winning big trophies. You only get one career and at the end of it you look back at what you won and the big games that you played in.

I'm really ambitious and I really want to do that.

It has been widely reported that this will be Rice's last season with The Hammers, although some of the club's supporters had hoped that they could convince him to stay for a bit longer.


While there has long been an acceptance that he would move on at some point, many are not impressed with the way he is conducting himself at the moment.


The timing of his comments are certainly not ideal, with the player now away on international duty and West Ham's season having been very underwhelming up to this point.

It will be interesting to see how he handles his exit when it does eventually come around. History suggests that it may not be done in the most gracious of manners.
