A lot of West Ham fans are raving over a highlight reel of Declan Rice’s best bits at the club posted by fan page West Ham Transfers on Twitter.
The £44.55m-valued defensive midfielder, who came from the Hammers academy, made his debut in the last game of the season in 2017 and since then has turned into a vital player in the starting eleven, per Transfermarkt. He has made 100 appearances for the club and his quality has been rewarded with an England call up by manager Gareth Southgate as Rice featured for the first time for his nation on March 22nd 2019.
This campaign, the 21 year-old has made on average three tackles per game and 2.1 interceptions per game, per WhoScored, highlighting how key he is at breaking up opposition attacks and this hasn’t gone unnoticed as rumours have been circulating that London rivals Chelsea are very interested in signing the player in the summer, via Sky Sports.
Here is what fans had to say following the video:

I thought he only plays it backwards?! Any football fan who states that doesn’t watch him regularly enough. When you know, you know COYI

Sounds easy, but very few players in world football can win the ball & run forward 30 yards with it!
