West Ham: Fans agree with Adrian Durham’s Declan Rice verdict

West Ham: Fans agree with Adrian Durham’s Declan Rice verdict - West Ham

Adrian Durham believes that Declan Rice is too good for West Ham United and needs to leave the club in order to progress his career.

Speaking on talkSPORT’s ‘Drive’ show on Wednesday, the presenter insisted that it was a mistake for the midfielder to remain at the Hammers last summer and that he needs to move to a bigger club as soon as possible as he is “too good to be slumming it at the bottom of the table”.

Rice is one of the most highly-rated young English players in the Premier League at the moment and has already played 82 times for the east London outfit in the top flight (Transfermarkt). This season he has been an ever present, starting 21 of their 22 league games (Transfermarkt), but the team as a whole has struggled and they currently sit in 16th place, just one point above the relegation zone (BBC Sport).

His performances have caught the eye of many and, as a result, he has consistently been linked with a move away from West Ham, with the Daily Mail recently reporting that Manchester United are keen to sign him in the summer.

Obviously most Hammers fans do not want to lose Rice. But perhaps surprisingly quite a few of them seemed to agree with Durham’s comments that the player needed to move on for the good of his career, suggesting that he has been let down by the board at West Ham and that he will struggle to achieve anything with them.

Here is what some had to say about it on Twitter.
